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.
Noah Thomas stars as Jamie, taking over the role from Layton Williams. Melissa Jaques is Margaret New, comedian Rufus Hound (Don Quixote) is Hugo/Loco, Sejal Keshwala is Ray and Hiba Elchikhe is Pritti Pasha. Well-loved comedian Katy Brand, a regular on many British TV sketch-comedies and panel shows, is currently playing the role of Miss Hedge.
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.
