The Voice UK: Sam Buttery lands role in Boy George musical, Taboo!
There’s good news today for fans of The Voice UK finalist Sam Buttery because it’s been announced that he’s landed a role in West End musical Taboo, which will run from September to late December at London’s Brixton Club House.
Of his role in the musical, which was originally played Boy George, Sam said he’s delighted to be playing the role of Leigh Bowery, and added, “Leigh Bowery is such an icon to me, so to get the chance to play him is just phenomenal. I just can’t wait!”
Taboo, which is to be directed by Christopher Renshaw, is set against the backdrop of the 1980s New Romantic scene and tells of the story of a young Billy, based on Boy George, who has aspirations about becoming a photographer…
The story sees Billy encountering a host of Boy George’s contemporaries, including Leigh Bowery, pop singer Marilyn, ‘Blitz’ nightclub host Steve Strange, as well as Punk groupie and Mud Club promoter, Philip Salon. The musical explores the effect all these characters had on Bowery.
As Black Eyed Peas fans will know, the 2005 hit was about Will’s band mate Fergie’s breasts and bum. In the song, the line “my hump” is repeated 55 times.
The song received 22% of the votes in a survey of 2,000 clubbers, while Nessaja by German band Scooter was second, followed by the Vengaboys’ Up and Down.
