The pop star will discuss his new musical on the syndicated talk show "Live with Regis and Kelly," which airs in the metropolitan area on WABC-TV, 9 10 AM; check local listings.
Born George O'Dowd in Eltham, Kent, in 1961, Boy George became a pop star in the early eighties when he joined Michael Craig and John Moss to form the group Culture Club. Their hits included “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me.” The singer-actor-composer has written the score for the new musical Taboo, where he plays the role of Leigh Bowery, another eighties club character. Boy George's autobiography, "Take It Like a Man," was published in 1995.
Taboo officially opens at the Plymouth Theatre — 236 West 45th Street — Nov. 13. Tickets, priced between $80 and $100, are available through Telecharge, (212) 239-6200. For more information about the musical, visit www.tabooonbroadway.com.
