Overview

After a smash-hit, sold-out season at the Sheffield Crucible, brand new musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie receives an explosive West End at the Apollo Theatre. Created by Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae, this sensational new musical plays in London to packed-out audiences, so don't miss out!.

Based on a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows 16 year old Jamie, who doesn't quite fit in at school. An out of place Sheffield starlet who dreams of fame and fortune on the drag circuit, Jamie enlists the help of his incredibly supportive friends and family to defy expectations and take his first shaky high-heeled steps into the limelight. A heart-warming story about defeating the bullies and staying true to who you are, this glittering musical received wide acclaim from audiences and critics alike.

John McCrea continues as Jamie, alongside Rebecca McKinnis as Margaret New, Lee Ross as Hugo/Loco, Shobna Gulati as Ray, and Lucie Shorthouse as Pritti Pasha. Michelle Visage plays Miss Hedge, the role that marks her West End musical debut. From 28 January 2019, Layton Williams takes over the starring role of Jamie, replacing McCrea.

Additional casting includes Alex Anstey, Luke Baker, Luke Bayer, Courtney Bowman, Marvyn Charles, Ken Christiansen, Jordan Cunningham, Daniel Davids, James Gillan, Ryan Hughes, Daniel Jacob, Cherelle Jay, Harriet Payne, Chloe Pole, Shiv Rabheru, Lauran Rae and Kirstie Skivington.

With music by The Feeling's Dan Gillespie Sells and lyrics and a book by BAFTA Award-nominated Tom MacRae (Doctor Who), Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is directed by Jonathan Butterell and features design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound design by Paul Groothius and choreography by Kate Prince.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is inspired by the BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, and is a powerful story that is guaranteed to resonate with audience members. Transferring to London for a dazzling West End run, the musical opened at the Apollo Theatre in November 2017, and continues to play.

Michelle Visage plays the role of Miss Hedge from 18 October 2018 to 26 January 2019. Please note: Michelle Visage will not be performing the role of Miss Hedge on 20-29 November, 22 December & 24 December 2018.
