Boy George musical Taboo is set for a revival in London, telling the rags to riches tale of an 80s icon.
The Olivier Award-winning show open at the Brixton Club House in September and will once again be directed by co-creator, Christopher Renshaw.
Taboo is the story of a young girl and boy swept up in the flamboyant club scene of the 1980s.
It also focuses on two other young men – Leigh Bowery, a brilliant, anarchic performance artist and and George O’Dowd, a young, rough-edged boy who arrives in London and, once part of the club world, becomes the surprising crossover star of the scene, Boy George.
From squat to superstardom, from rock to rock bottom, both mens’ stories are played out against the background of Taboo, the nightclub that came to symbolize the excess and decadence of 1980s London and subsequently defined a generation.
Taboo runs in the UK capital from 7 September to 23 December. Tickets are on sale from today (6 June).
