Looking for a magnificent, opulent, tremendous, stupendous, gargantuan, bedazzlement, a sensual ravishment? Look no further than Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway, where ’80s superstar Boy George is set to light up the stage in 2024.

During his latest appearance on the TODAY show on Monday (Nov. 6), George revealed that he would be joining the cast of the Tony Award-winning musical in the role of Harold Zidler, the enigmatic and fabulous owner of the titular club, starting on Feb. 6, and running until May 12.

Speaking with hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, George said that he was particularly excited to be joining an ensemble cast, something he prefers when it comes to live performing. “Just being part of an ensemble is really fun,” he said. “You can’t have an ego, because there’s too many people. It’s about fitting in, especially because everyone’s been doing this show for a while. So, hopefully, they’re going to teach me.”

Moulin Rouge! will not mark Boy George’s first time on the Great White Way. Back in 2003, the singer debuted his original musical Taboo, which told the story of his life in conjunction with the founding of his band Culture Club and the New Romantic club scene in London. The show was nominated for four Tony Awards in 2004, including best original score for George’s music.

In the meantime, George is currently promoting his new autobiography Karma, described as a story recounting “the drama, the music, his journey of addiction and recovery, surviving prison,” and much more. During his appearance on the TODAY show, George reminisced about the massive success of “Karma Chameleon,” the desire for himself and his band to find success in the U.S., and how he was sure from a young age that he would be famous. He said, “I guess I just knew I wasn’t going to play football and climb trees.”
