It is true though; Darius Danesh, the ‘Colourblind’ pop sensation, is said to be distraught this week as the cancellation of his latest venture (a musical adaptation of ‘Gone With The Wind’) is made public. The show has only managed to put on 79 performances and despite being an off-putting 3 hours and 15 minutes long, I am convinced that Danesh’s look is to blame. A thin moustache and pair of Noddy Holder-sideburns hardly attract the fashionably-inclined.
After all, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom” gets to wear a mask that mirrors the work of Comme des Garcons, Luella Bartley and even Gareth Pugh!
