Here's a new and distinctively British musical that could give the imminent arrival of Hamilton from Broadway a serious run for its money, and is just the refreshing breath of fresh, inclusive air the West End needs right now. Read more
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 brand new British musical is the inspirational story of Jamie New, a 16-year old schoolboy from Sheffield 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.
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).
The production is the first foray into musicals for Gillespie Sells and MacRae, who realised the idea to make the story into a musical from director Jonathan Butterell.
