“The Boy from Oz” Musical Performance | Gateway Theatre
A raucous musical biography about the life of the most famous gay man from Australia – entertainer, singer/songwriter, Peter Allen – featuring songs written by him and with other collaborators.
About The Boy from Oz
The show begins in the 1950s with his humble beginnings growing up in an Australian bush town. He then experiences a meteoric rise to fame as an international star opening for Judy Garland and selling out week-long engagements at Radio City Music Hall.
Allen was Judy Garland’s good friend and Liza Minnelli’s first husband, but, first and foremost, singer-songwriter Peter Allen was a performer. Within a few years, Allen and Minnelli split due to Allen’s homosexuality. Eventually, Allen dies from AIDS – but before he dies, he is able to give one final concert back in his homeland.
