Lyn Paul's dream of starring in a stage musical came true in 1997 when she was offered the lead role of Mrs. Johnstone in Willy Russell's Blood Brothers. Since then she has played the part many times in the West End and at theatres around the UK.

In 2002 Lyn starred in the West End production of Boy George's musical Taboo. The following year she lent her talents to a new musical, The Biz!, by Chris Hamel-Cooke and Charles Garland. In 2007 she starred as Vi Moore in Footloose The Musical and in 2011 she originated the role of Sophie in Rhinestone Mondays. In 2013, having brought the West End production of Blood Brothers to a close the year before, Lyn joined the cast of the Rufus Norris production of Cabaret for its UK tour. The programmes from these productions are described below.

Lyn Paul performed in Taboo from 6th May - 16th Nov 2002. During that time the cast went through many changes, with consequent updates to the theatre programme.

Taboo
The Venue
9th September - 16th November 2002

Lyn Paul took time out from Taboo in August for a family holiday. While she was away the cast went through a number of changes:

  • 5th August: Boy George returned to the role of Leigh Bowery; David Burt took over from Mark White as Derek James / Petal; John Partridge replaced Mark McGee as Marilyn; Dan Carter replaced Joe Docherty as Jake.

  • 12th August: Nicola Dawn replaced Michelle Hooper as Janey.

  • 19th August: Lucy Newton, who had been playing Virus, took over the bigger role of Kim from Dianne Pilkington. Alana Phillips was recruited as Virus.

These changes were reflected in a new programme, published on 9th September to coincide with the arrival of the new Leigh Bowery - Julian Clary. Declan Bennett, who up until then had played the parts of Gary and Guru Dazzle, became the new Billy. Ryan Molloy was the new Steve Strange.

Lyn Paul performed in Taboo for the last time on 16th November. Paul Baker and Euan Morton departed the cast at the same time.
