The wild London club scene of the 1980s is back in full force thanks to Christopher Renshaw’s reconceived revival of the Boy George musical Taboo. Taboo tells the story of an up-and-coming photographer Billy (Alistair Brammer), who immerses himself in the over-the-top London clubs and its most colorful inhabitants: Boy George, Philip Sallon and Leigh Bowery. The Olivier Award-winning and Tony-nominated musical is currently enjoying an intimate new adaptation at the Brixton Club House. Broadway.com photographer Bruce Glikas went backstage to capture the stellar cast’s eye-popping transformation into the legendary and wacky figures. Click below to be touched by the hand of cool, and beware, some of these photos are truly petrifying! If you’re in the London area, don’t miss this inspired revival, running through March 31, 2013.
