Little to Star in U.K. Taboo Star

News   Little to Star in U.K. Taboo Star Mark Little will play performance artist Leigh Bowery in the U.K. tour of the Boy George musical Taboo.

Little also played the role in the London production — at The Venue, off Leicester Square — of the show, which is now in previews on Broadway. Mark Little had a major solo success on Shaftesbury Avenue a few years ago with Defending the Caveman.

Set in London in the early eighties, Taboo focuses on two young men: anarchic performance artist-designer Leigh Bowery and a young, rough-edged boy who becomes a surprising crossover star, Boy George. The stories of Bowery and George are told against the background of the London club Taboo.

Further tour casting will be announced soon.
