With a new book by Charles Busch, Taboo concerned the lives of two larger-than-life personalities involved in the eighties London club scene: the Kent-born singer Boy George, who rose to fame and international acclaim via the pop group Culture Club; and performance artist Leigh Bowery, who became known for his outlandish costumes and make-up before an early death from AIDS. Their stories were told against the background of the London club Taboo, which featured an array of self-proclaimed "freaks."
The Broadway cast featured Boy George, Sarah Uriarte Berry, Jeffrey Carlson, Raúl Esparza, Donnie R. Keshawarz, Liz McCartney, Euan Morton and Cary Shields.
