The box office for the new Boy George musical Taboo — produced by Rosie O'Donnell and Adam Kenwright — opens Sept. 22.

The Plymouth Theatre box office, located in Manhattan at 236 West 45th Street, will begin selling tickets at 10 AM ET. Tickets for the musical, which begins previews Oct. 24, went on sale through Telecharge Sept. 3. Taboo will officially open Nov. 13.

The cast of Taboo features Sarah Uriarte Berry, Raúl Esparza, Liz McCartney, Euan Morton (as Boy George), George O’Dowd (as Leigh Bowery) and Cary Shields. The company comprises Jennifer Cody, Dioni Michelle Collins, Brooke Elliott, Lisa Gajda, Bob Gaynor, Curtis Holbrook, Lori Holmes, Jennifer Mrozik, Nathan Peck, Alexander Quiroga, Asa Somers, Denise Summerford, Jody Reynard, James Tabeek and Gregory Treco.

Christopher Renshaw directs the musical, which began life at London’s Venue in January 2002. That production played its final performance April 26. Mark Dendy will choreograph the Broadway mounting, and the remainder of the creative team comprises John McDaniel (musical supervision), Tim Goodchild (scenic design), Mike Nicholls and Bobby Pearce (costume design), Natasha Katz (lighting design), Jonathan Deans (sound design) and make-up and hair design (Christine Bateman). Charles Busch has written a new book for the Broadway production based on material by Mark Davies.

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.

Tickets, priced between $80 and $100, are also available through Telecharge, (212) 239-6200. For more information about the musical, visit www.tabooonbroadway.com.
