"TABOO" Euan Morton returns Feb 03
Olivier Award nominee Euan Morton returns to the Boy George musical Taboo, from 3 Feb to 26 Apr 03 as 'Boy George '.
Boy George has also extended his stay in his own show to 26 Apr 03 playing 'Leigh Bowery' . (NOTE: Boy George will not be appearing on the following dates: 7 Feb 8pm, 8 Feb 3pm and 8pm, 14 Feb 8pm, 15 Feb 3pm and 8pm, 22 Feb 8pm, 1 Mar 3pm and 8pm, 7 Mar 8pm, 8 Mar 3pm, 14 Mar 8pm, 15 Mar 3pm and 8pm, 22 Mar 8pm, 5 Apr 8pm and 20 Apr 8pm. )
Taboo, which has received 4 Olivier Award nominations, opened at The Venue, in Leicester Square, in January last 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.
