As someone who saw the enjoyable but mediocre New York Broadway production years ago with Boy George playing Leigh Bowery, this more intimate production is far superior. It is well worth the time and one may actually being part of the production.

Delighted that the wonderfully shameless Taboo is back! I loved the setting, loved the songs, loved the performances and have to say I loved the book! It’s the language that gives the characters all the colour of a gay pride rainbow – the wit of Philip Sallon, the hilarious showmanship of Leigh Bowery, the ludicrous Marilyn and the vulnerable loveable Boy George. It’s all comes via Davies Markham’s book along with Billy and Kim – characters that are real, accessible and fallible. Every man and every woman driving the story through. This show would not be the same without them. Bland it is not. Sharp, sarcastic, original and with the biggest heart and soul on the West End. Why else do audiences laugh and cry with recognition and return to see it time and time again?
