He was Judy Garland’s good friend and Liza Minnelli’s first husband, but more than anything singer-songwriter Peter Allen was a performer. The Boy From Oz, the musical based on his life, from small-town Australia to the bright lights of New York City, played to more than a million patrons in his home country before debuting on Broadway in 2003 with Hugh Jackman in the lead role. The story follows Allen as he meets Garland in a Hong Kong bar, then follows her to New York and marries her daughter, despite concerns about his sexuality. What follows is a tale of heartbreak, self-discovery, forgiveness and love, all told in Allen’s own songs. Experience the musical of a lifetime at Stage 773 in Chicago.
