It’s Australia Day, and what better way to celebrate it than to help Hossan rehearse for his show – a song from which is written by our favourite Australian songwriter, Peter Allen.
Hossan and I watched the original The Boy From Oz musical staged in Sydney in 1998, before it was tweaked for Broadway with Allen played by Hugh Jackman. It was through this musical that I realised so many songs I love were written by this immensely talented man who lived an incredibly remarkable life.
I’m very glad a Peter Allen song made the cut for Hossan-Ah: Safe & Secure In His Leong Arms, which opens this Wednesday night. Let me know if you need tickets – I got lobang for discount.
