Show Pics: Taboo revived at Brixton Club House
Date: 13 September 2012
Production photos have been released for the current revival of Taboo at Brixton Club House, which opens to press tonight (13 September 2012, previews from 7 September).
Written by Mark Davies Markham, with music and lyrics by Boy George, Taboo centres on Billy, an aspiring photographer, who launches himself onto London's vibrant club scene during the "decadent" 80s. He encounters many of the era's most notorious personalities - including Marilyn, Steve Strange, Leigh Bowery, Philip Sallon and George himself.

While Taboo includes snippets of some Culture Club classics, George also penned an original score with songs including "Ode to Attention Seekers", "Stranger in this World", "Love Is a Question Mark", "Guttersnipe", "Touched by the Hand of Cool", "Out of Fashion" and "Pie in the Sky".
The cast of Taboo includes Paul Baker, Sam Buttery, Matthew Rowland, Alistair Brammer, Sarah Ingram, Michael Matus, Niamh Perry, Adam Bailey, Owain Williams, Katie Kerr and Daniella Bowen. Directed by Christopher Renshaw, Taboo runs at Brixton Club House until 23 December 2012.

Cast of Taboo
|Utterly amazing. - Tessa Raafat||01 Mar 13|
|Went to see Taboo on 10/11/2012 matinee's performance,
The cast and their performances were just unbelievably amazing, the show was outstanding, the songs fantastic, (Boy George should be writing more stuff, the man is undoubtably talented as anyone around now or in the past).
I was apprehensive at first but my wife told me to embrace it, at the end I was holding back tears, it was very powerful and moving the characters really drew you in.
