Filmed at the Scottish Television’s Gateway Theater, in Edinburgh, and directed by Brian Mahoney, Pierrot in Turquoise was David Bowie’s first appearance in theatre. Thankfully filmed by Scottish Television in 1969 and then broadcast in July 1970, it’s a sneak preview of the brilliance Bowie was about to achieve on stage – in theatre, film and in music.
