In a return the role that won him rave reviews earlier this year, Boy George returns as Leigh Bowery from 11 November 2002 through to 1 February 2003.
"The evening is sufficiently light and witty and so deliciously bitchy and ironic that you cannot help warming to it." - The Guardian
A sparkling new musical by Boy George with book by Mark Davies-Markham.
The 1980's - Margaret Thatcher rules politics, riots run through Brixton, Live Aid unites the world. New Romantics, style magazines, designer labels, and the Queen's Silver Jubilee were fresh in the minds of all the Great British Public. Boy George's first musical Taboo brings to life a decadent decade -a vibrant era of colourful dreams, dazzling fashion, and the beginning of pop culture as we know it today.
Featuring 16 brand new songs alongside classics hits including 'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me' and 'Karma Chameleon', this witty and entertaining new musical takes on the life, times and styles of the innovators who shaped and defined the face of a decade. A love story of passion, ambition and betrayal unfolds alongside the journey of Boy George's rise and fall from international stardom.
This new musical is being staged at The Venue, a stylishly retro, reclaimed dance hall off Leicester Square in the heart of London's West End. Mark Davies-Markham wrote the popular cult television series This Life.
