“The Boy From Oz” tells about the life of the great Australian entertainer, Peter Allen. The show starts  in the 1950’s 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. Later, Allen marries Garland’s daughter, Liza Minnelli. Within a few years, Allen and Minnelli split due to Allen’s homosexuality. Eventually, Allen – but before he dies, he is able to give one final concert back in his homeland.
