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 storms into London for a limited run beginning in November 2018.

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 reprises his role of Jamie, alongside the majority of the Sheffield Crucible cast, which includes Josie Walker as Margaret, Mina Anwar as Ray, Tamsin Carroll as Miss Hedge, Lucie Shorthouse as Pritti Pasha, Phil Nichol as Hugo, Alex Anstey as Laika Virgin, James Gillan as Tray Sophisticay, Daniel Jacob as Sandra Bollock, Ken Christiansen as Jamie’s Dad and Luke Baker as Dean Paxton, alongside Courtney Bowman, Jordan Cunningham, Daniel Davids, Ryan Hughes, Harriet Payne, 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 plays at the Apollo Theatre from 6 November 2017 to 21 April 2018.

I just went to see this show tonight (it's second night!) and I'm in such a great mood! It's so uplifting and genuinely funny. There's lots of sass and laughter throughout and I am still smiling two hours after seeing the show! The show is modern, and is - like it says - for the new generation/millenials without being too condesending about it. It's relatable (i'm from Yorkshire so enjoyed the accents) and one of the most joyous shows you'll see. I wholeheartedly hope that it gets the best reviews and is on the west end for a long time to come. Please go and see this wonderful show.

I absolutely adored this show. Based on a true story, Jamie tells the story of a teenager desperate to unleash his inner diva. It's a super important message in the current climate - all about acceptance, believing in yourself and being exactly who you want to be. The music is brilliant, especially for a new musical; you find yourself humming the tunes long after you've left the theatre. It's surprisingly funny too, and packed with a super talented cast who are clearly properly invested in the show and its message. Would absolutely recommend. You can't miss it!

I'd heard so much about this show from friends that saw it in Sheffield, and had been looking forward to it for months. It completely met my expectations - wonderful story, excellent cast, GREAT choreography, catchy songs and a lot of heart. I saw it when it was still in previews and there's still a lot of polishing that needs to happen, and I felt the ending could have done with a bit more of a punch before the curtain call which is why I didn't go for 5 stars. I'll definitely be going back during the main run!

This is undoubtedly a feel good show. Some of the songs are excellent and some are very moving. There's also excellent use of lighting throughout the show. However, I found it all very cliche - each character was a real stereotype and behaved exactly as expected throughout the show. It was also overly long for a show which we all knew what the ending was going to be. That said, the acting and singing was excellent and the dancing was stunning.

AMAZING SHOW!! Don't want to miss this!! Still in previews so some little things need brushing up, however the dancing and acting was all amazing!! One thing, the sound was quite low and I felt like I was straining to hear dialogue at some points.

It was a great tale about being who you want to be and not letting other people dictate your life. There were some moments where I felt improvements needed to be made to the pace of it with some songs not adding much to the plot at all, however overall it was enjoyable.
