Taboo, London's Boy George Musical, Extends

News   Taboo, London's Boy George Musical, Extends

Boy George's new musical, Taboo, has extended its run to Sept. 14.

A clear sign of producer Adam Kenwright's confidence in the show, this also reflects the good reviews that Taboo (generally) won from the theatre press.

Taboo mixes fact with fiction as it tells a love story against a backdrop of the gallery of characters who helped to make the 1980's London club scene the most exciting in the world. Among these were Steve Strange, Leigh Bowery, Marilyn and Philip Sallon and, naturally, Boy George himself.

The show is directed by award-winning West End and Broadway director Christopher Renshaw, who will also be directing the Queen musical We Will Rock You, with a book by Mark (This Life) Davies-Markham.

The musical has opened The Venue, a converted church hall off Leicester Square, and if the success of Taboo is any indicator, London has found an exciting and adaptable new performance space in the heart of the West End.
