It's strange that some shows like Phantom of the Opera and Wicked haven't yet been available for production perhaps because of the staging yet Miss Saigon and Hairspray are.
But what about older shows like Coco (which got negative reviews, but ran because it starred Katharine Hepburn in her only musical) or The Magic Show (perhaps because it was a vehicle for Doug Henning a magician who didn't even sing in the show).
I guess that's why The Boy From Oz hasn't yet been available. It's an Australian show which was a star vehicle on Broadway for Hugh Jackman. It was a hit but closed after a year and a half because Jackman left the show and there wasn't anyone who could replace him.
