McQueen’s Life Comes To The Stage

Can a subject be too interesting for drama? That was playwright James Phillips’s fear when he began to think about the life of the late great, fashion iconoclast Alexander McQueen (pictured). For though McQueen’s life as the East End lad who became the “bad boy of British fashion” was eventful, he worried about writing a show which delivered salaciousness, but missed the creative spark. “It was the work I was interested in first of all – approaching him as an artist,” Phillips says about “McQueen,” which opens this month in London, starring Stephen Wight and “Glee”‘s Diana Agron (pictured).
