Taboo, Boy George's musical about the 1980s club world, will now be holding late-night performances. The cast will have to work extra hard on Fridays evenings during March 1, 8, and 15 because there will be two performances those nights—an early one, starting at 7 PM, and a later one at 10:30 PM.
Taboo mixes fact with fiction as it tells a love story against a backdrop of the gallery of characters who helped to make the London club scene the most exciting in the world. Among these were Steve Strange, Leigh Bowery, Marilyn and Philip Sallon and Boy George himself.
Taboo is presented at The Venue, off Leicester Square. Formerly known as the Notre Dame Hall, it was especially converted for this production.
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 next year, with a book by Mark Davies-Markham.
