The Peter Allen stage biography The Boy From Oz will have its world premiere Mar. 5 at Her Majesty's Theatre in Sydney, Australia. The show began performances Feb. 26, after cancelling its first two scheduled previews owing to "technical reasons relating to the set."
The musical tells the story of Australian born entertainer and features the many hits he wrote for himself and others. Todd McKenney plays the lead role with Gale Edwards directing.
The Opening Night remains unchanged although there is a waiting list of over 100 VIPs hoping for tickets after an almost 100% acceptance rate after invitations were issued. Producers are confident the show will be staged in Canada and Broadway before the end of the year. Bookings(61-2)92664020.
