The Boy from Oz. Have you ever listened to this?

I owned this OBC for nearly a year before I actually took the time to listen and discovered that it is quite good. Hugh Jackman does a great job, obviously giving out more energy than I thought possible on a recording. Don't be as close-minded as I was, thinking that a musical biography made up of songs written by that person, with a story forced between songs, couldn't be quality entertainment.

It's sad for me to believe what I nearly missed!

Thanks for the comments over at Thespis Journal. If you look around, you might find several of my Broadway post to be interesting.

I have not heard the OBC of "The Boy From Oz," however, I am extremely impressed with Hugh Jackman from the London production of Oklahoma! He is truly a musical theater powerhouse! He sings well, and is totally believable on stage.

I suppose I should get the recording.

Thanks again. Stay in touch.

Happy Birthday, Jackman is here touring the show in Oz (where I am) and while I want to see it a good seat costs $250!

Hope all is well,
Knitty
