The Limehouse Golem is set in the East End of London before the advent of The Ripper; a thriller of macabre suspense and horror, littered with bloody corpses, red herrings and the vaudeville names of London in the 1880s.
The Limehouse Golem
Role Dan Leno
But it’s Douglas Booth who really stands out next to Cooke… There’s a delightful playfulness to his character with a hint of serious edge, as there is with many great artists. His cockney accent and imperfect teeth only add to this fully realised - and extremely watchable - character.Adam Chitwood
Douglas Booth is superb as Dan Leno
Douglas Booth is mesmerizing as drag artist Dan Leno (a well known comic singer, who influenced the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel). With his expressive face and winsome ways, you can't take your eyes off him.
