Jeremy Kushnier & More Join TABOO Reunion Concert at 54 Below, 2/7-8
Exactly ten years after closing on Broadway, Boy George's TABOO returns to New York for a very special two-night-only engagement benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS on February 7-8. The concerts star Matthew Rowland (Boy George) and Samuel Buttery (Leigh Bowery), both of whom will be reprising their performances from the 2012 revival of TABOO at the Brixton Clubhouse in London. Jeremy Kushnier (Footloose, Jersey Boys, Jesus Christ Superstar) takes on the role of "Philip Sallon."
Boy George'S TABOO: TEN YEARS LATER will also reunite original Broadway stars Sarah Uriarte Berry (Nicola), Jeffrey Carlson (Marilyn), Liz McCartney (Big Sue) and Cary Shields (Marcus), and ensemble members Jennifer Cody, Lisa Gajda, Bob Gaynor, Curtis Holbrook, Donnie Keshawarz, Jennifer K. Mrozik, Nathan Peck, Alexander Quiroga, Jody Reynard, Asa Somers, Denise Summerford, James Tabeek, and Gregory Treco.
Boy George'S TABOO: TEN YEARS LATER is being presented by Grammy and Emmy Award winner John McDaniel and Amanda Sales. McDaniel, who served as musical supervisor and arranger during TABOO's original Broadway run, will also act as music director for the concerts. He will play piano and conduct a band of some of TABOO's original musicians: Kevan Frost on guitar, Chris Jago on drums, and David Kuhn on bass.
