About a month ago I reached out to the wider podcasting community around the world in hopes to connect with like-minded creatives to discuss theatre and our own Theatre Thoughts Podcast. My first stop was A MUSICAL THEATRE PODCAST hosted by Jeffrey Scott Parsons. We sat down to discuss one of Australia’s most well-known musical exports, The Boy From Oz!
You can read the description for the episode below as well as where and how to listen to it. Follow the links to listen to other episodes of A MUSICAL THEATRE PODCAST as well.
The closest we’ve been to a new-old school “star vehicle” in modern musical theatre is unquestionably THE BOY FROM OZ which tells the story of the divinely flamboyant Peter Allen and probably wouldn’t have been on Broadway, let alone a big hit, without the star wattage of Allen’s Aussie countryman, Hugh Jackman. Here this week to discuss this musical and other important Australian exports (like actors and tim tams) is both a “boy from Oz” and podcaster, Justin Clarke! Please enjoy this conversation (and Justin’s accent) that reminds us how musicals can connect us, even on opposite ends of the world.
