    Theater: Gerald Schoenfeld / 236 West 45th Street, New York, NY,

    Synopsis: 

    Taboo is a musical portrait of a brief but remarkable era -- London in the early 1980s. An ever-shifting time that sparked a rebellion among the youth that found its expression in flamboyant fashion and decadent nightlife. These kids were "the New Romantics" -- leaders of an unofficial movement that left a lasting influence on music and fashion. The musical focuses on two young men -- Leigh Bowery, a brilliant, anarchic performance artist/designer and George O'Dowd, a young, rough-edged boy who arrives in London and -- once swept up into the exciting artistic climate -- becomes the surprising crossover star of the scene as Boy George.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Taboo

    Flagrantly Stylish, Outrageously Sexy

    Ben Brantley

    November 14, 2003: Aw, look at those frisky, frolicsome creatures up there, in their bright tufted costumes and motley makeup. They sure still are a peppy bunch -- leaping, pirouetting, shaking their furry selves to a bouncy Broadway beat. Who would ever have thought that the popular cats of ''Cats'' would be restored to us so soon after the end of that musical's long, long run?
