New Broadway musical renews interest in performer's work

It seems to have been Peter Allen's fate to be overshadowed by other stars. When he died in 1992 -- by which time he had scored an Academy Award, recorded 10 albums and starred on Broadway -- Allen was still identified in obituaries as the man who had been discovered by Judy Garland and was the first husband of her daughter, Liza Minnelli.
