WHEN the RSC's critically acclaimed Blue Angel transferred to the West End, it closed within seven weeks. So Kelly Hunter, who gave a startling performance in the Marlene Dietrich role, hit on an idea. A cut-price rip-everything-up production of The Threepenny Opera.

When I was in Culture Club people didn't really know I was a poof. Now I'm more aggressive. When I'm in public with my boyfriend I don't call him my 'personal assistant'. I say, 'This is my boyfriend.' This annoys some people.
