To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Taboo, a one-night-only charity concert will be held in 2022. Taboo is at the London Palladium on 30 Jan. 2022, and Taboo tickets are on sale now. 

In a tweet by Daily Mail entertainment reporter Baz Bamigboye, many of the original cast, and casts from later productions will star. Casting for Taboo at the London Palladium is to be confirmed.

Taboo is inspired by the London nightclub of the same name, which opened in the 1980s. In its early years, artists like Boy George would visit regularly, with the Taboo musical exploring how the nightclub symbolised a generation. 

Taboo opened at the Venue Theatre (now Leicester Square Theatre) on 29 Jan. 2002, earning four Olivier Award nominations including best new musical. Cast members in the original production of Taboo include Luke Evans, Matt Lucas, Dianne Pilkington and John Partridge. Read reviews of Taboo in 2002 on LondonTheatre.co.uk here. The musical then transferred to Broadway the following year, but closed after 100 performances.  

Taboo features a book by Mark Davies Markham, with music and lyrics by Boy George and Kevan Frost and direction by Christopher Renshaw will direct the Taboo concert.

Proceeds from the Taboo concert will be raising money for the Terrence Higgins Trust and Shelter.
