"TABOO" ANNOUNCE MAJOR CAST CHANGES

The Boy George musical Taboo has announced some major cast changes from 18 Nov 02: 80's pop star Mari Wilson joins cast as 'Rosie (replacing Lyn Paul), along with Stephen Ashfield as 'Boy George' (replacing Euan Morton) and Phil Nichol as 'Philip Salon' (replacing Paul Baker)

Boy George returns to play 'Leigh Bowery' from 11 Nov 02 for 12 weeks to 25 Jan 03 (replacing Julian Clary) .

Taboo opened at The Venue, in Leicester Square, in January this year to good notices from the popular press: THE TIMES says, “The casting is impeccable, the bitching is bewitching, and positively no one is underdressed.” DAILY TELEGRAPH says, “Taboo is a genuine breakthrough, and, despite its flaws, deserves to succeed……..the show has heart as well as attitude….Boy George's music and lyrics are terrific, blessed with melody, wit and a yearning vulnerability.” THE DAILY MAIL says, “Enjoyable new musical … that is also surprisingly conventional."

The show, currently taking bookings to 31st May 03, has music & lyrics by Boy George and book by Mark Davies-Markham and directed by Christopher Renshaw..

"TABOO" tells the story of the times, with actors playing out the parts of the bill-topping performers who defined a generation, including STEVE STRANGE from VISAGE, the indefinable phenomenon that was LEIGH BOWERY, the one-man extravaganza MARILYN and club entrepreneur extraordinaire PHILIP SALLON. And then of course, there's BOY GEORGE, travelling from squat to superstardom, from rock to rock bottom. The show interweaves some fantastical facts of the 80s with a classic love story of ambition, passion and betrayal.
