Not the boy next door!
Grab your maracas for this tour de force musical that scored
Hugh Jackman his landmark Tony Award for Best Performance
by a Leading Actor. The Boy From Oz skillfully weaves
Peter Allen’s sensational song catalogue into a brilliant night out!
From his relationship to Liza Minnelli and a fabulous but
high-maintenance mother-in-law Judy Garland, to revelations
around his identity, The Boy From Oz is a glittering re-telling
of the life of Australia’s original song-and-dance man,
the one who always called Australia ‘home’.
