Boy George's musical Taboo to return for 20th anniversary charity staged concert

Boy George's iconic musical Taboo will return for a special 20th anniversary charity  staged concert at The London Palladium for one night only on 30th January 2022. Produced by Adam Kenwright and co-created with Mark Davies Markham and Kevan Frost, it will be in aid of two charities:  The Terrence Higgins Trust and Shelter.

Director Christopher Renshaw will return for the concert. The concert will reunite a variety of stars from the original West End and Broadway productions, members of the original company with exact casting to be revealed. 

Set in an abandoned London warehouse, the partly imagined story of a group of club 'names' set in the location of what was the city's most fashionable nightclub, the now-legendary Taboo (1985-87) of the title, which was the creation of Leigh Bowery. Boy George is featured as one of the club's regulars, but in reality, George rarely attended. The show also focuses on George's life prior to and after achieving fame.

Plotting the lives of those who frequented the legendary Taboo club, the show originally featured artistes including Julian Clary, Luke Evans, Boy George, Dianne Pilkington, John Partridge, Matt Lucas, Paul Baker, Declan Bennett, Euan Morton, Lyn Paul and  Stephen Ashfield.
