Jeremy Kushnier (Footloose, Jersey Boys, Jesus Christ Superstar) takes on the role of "Philip Sallon."

Mrozik, Nathan Peck, Alexander Quiroga, Jody Reynard, Asa Somers, Denise Summerford, James Tabeek, and Gregory Treco.
Boy George'S TABOO: TEN YEARS LATER was 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, also acted as music director for the concerts. He played the piano and conducted a band of some of TABOO's original musicians: Kevan Frost on guitar, Chris Jago on drums, and David Kuhn on bass.
