In 1985 brilliant designer and performance artist Leigh Bowery opened legendary London nightclub Taboo. Frequented by Boy George and other legends of the New Romantic scene Taboo quickly became the hottest club in town.
Taboo is a love story played out against the fantastic background of the nightclub that came to symbolise the excess and decadence of 1980s London, and subsequently defined a generation. These were the leaders of a phenomenon which left a lasting influence on both the face and fate of pop, fashion and social culture.
The original West End production of Taboo helped launch the careers of many now illustrious performers including Luke Evans, Matt Lucas, Diane Pilkington, Declan Bennett, Euan Morton, Lyn Paul, Stephen Ashfield & John Partridge. Julian Clary and Boy George himself all made their West End debuts in the show playing the fabulous Leigh Bowery, and Paul Baker won a much-deserved Olivier Award for his portrayal of Philip Salon.
