The Boy from Oz [A Decca Broadway Original Cast Musical]

The Boy from Oz [A Decca Broadway Original Cast Musical]




Australia’s favorite son, the flamboyant performer Peter Allen, may have had his highest profile in the late '70s, but his legacy lives on in the many quality songs his name is attached to as composer, including “ I Honestly Love You,” “I Go to Rio,” “Everything Old Is New Again,” “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” and “I’d Rather Leave when I’m in Love.” Each of those songs, plus plenty of other Allen gems, is heard on the highly entertaining cast album of The Boy from Oz, featuring Hugh Jackman as Allen. The show’s featured songs echo Allen’s career and personal life, including a short-lived marriage to Liza Minnelli, presenting a modern showbiz tale of the mercurial nature of fame and romance. With the legendary producer Phil Ramone behind the boards, this cast album has a snap, as well as a poignancy, that should resonate with listeners who remember Allen, as well as those who are coming to his music for the first time.
