Everybody’s Talking About Jamie Information
Everybody's Talking About Jamie will return to the West End in 2024, with performances at the Peacock Theatre. Find out more about upcoming performances.
Everybody's Talking About Jamie is brought to the West End by Dan Gillespie Sells (singer-songwriter of The Feeling) and Tom MacRae (writer for Doctor Who). This new British musical is the inspirational story of Jamie New, a 16-year-old Sheffield schoolboy who decides he wants to go to his school prom in a dress. The story takes inspiration from the BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, which followed the true story of Jamie Campbell.
With an infectious original score from Gillespie Sells, which includes instant classics such as "And You Don't Even Know It", "He's My Boy" and "The Wall In My Head", the story explores Jamie's relationship with the kids at school, his mother, and himself. The musical picked up comparisons to Billy Elliot for the modern age.
Everybody's Talking About Jamie started life in Sheffield with a run at the Crucible Theatre, and transferred to London's Apollo Theatre with previews beginning on 6th November 2017, and an official opening night on 22nd November. The original cast included John McCrea (Jamie) and Lucie Shorthouse (Pritti).
