I know this has been under discussion in the Boy George and Leigh Bowery topics here, but with previews beginning and opening night just 2+ weeks away, I thought a Taboo topic might be handy.
For those of you who don't subscribe to our events lists, I thought I'd post this here.
And Finally... A Word About TABOO
We don't usually announce private events to our lists, but we've had so many inquiries about THE JACKIE FACTORY's participation in the opening night party for TABOO, it's easier to let everyone know. Producers CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL are honored to be creating entertainment inspired by our late friend LEIGH BOWERY for the November 13 event, to be held at THE ROXY. Since this gala is by invitation only, we don't have a guest list. However, we welcome participation by as many diehard BOWERY BOYS and girls as possible, so if you dress/live this period and we haven't contacted you, do drop a line to email@example.com.
The reconstructions of Leigh's costumes being created by GARO SPARO for this evening will be donated to the DOWNTOWN COSTUME INSTITUTE for an upcoming show, so the eventual audience for this work extends way past one night! In a related note, the Charlie Atlas film THE LEGEND OF LEIGH BOWERY will open on NOVEMBER 28 at CINEMA VILLAGE, which is truly joyous news. As "Leigh Bowery Month" begins in his adopted city, we honor and still mourn this giant who once walked among us.
