Rosie Reveals Plans for Broadway Taboo???

By • West End
Rumours of a Broadway transfer for Boy George's Taboo have been doing the rounds for a while, but speculation has intensified this week with American actress-comedienne-chat show host Rosie O'Donnell's announcement that she'd like to produce the show in New York. Though it would be the first she's produced, O'Donnell is no stranger to musicals. Previously, she has starred in Grease and Suessical and is currently working on a new show based on her autobiography. Taboo, which opened in London at the specially created Venue in January 2002, relives the 1980s London club scene that spawned the New Romantic movement and stars such as Steve Strange, Marilyn and George himself, who all feature as characters. Boy George returns to the West End production next week, playing the late performance artist Leigh Bowery for a short stint before comedian Julian Clary joins the cast. Whether George will perform in any Broadway production - which O'Donnell hopes to open in spring 2003 - is yet to be seen. Taboo features a book by Mark Davies and an original score by George. It's produced in London by Adam Kenwright.
