Everybody's Talking About Jamie extends West End run into October 2018
Good news for new hit British musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. Initially intended to run through to 21 April 2018 at the Apollo Theatre, the musical has now extended its West End engagement through to 6 October 2018. The production began previews on 6 November 2017 and officially opened to rave reviews on 22 November.
This brand new British musical is the inspirational story of Jamie, 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.
Everybody's Talking About Jamie features a book by Tom MacRae, with music from The Feeling frontman Dan Gillespie Sells.
The cast includes John McCrea (reprising his role as Jamie from the original Sheffield Theatres production) and Josie Walker (also returning to play his mother, Margaret), alongside Daniel Davids (as Levi), Mina Anwar (as Rayia ‘Ray’ Begum), Luke Baker (as Dean Paxton), Courtney Bowman (as Fatimah), Tamsin Carroll (as Miss Hedge), James Gillan (as Tray Sophisticay), Harriet Payne (as Bex), Shiv Rabheru (as Cy), Lucie Shorthouse (as Pritti Pasha), Kirstie Skivington (as Vicki), Alex Anstey (as Laika Virgin), Ken Christiansen (as Jamie’s Dad), Jordan Cunningham (as Sayid), Ryan Hughes (as Mickey), Daniel Jacob (as Sandra Bollock), Phil Nichol (as Hugo), and Lauran Rae (as Becca), with Luke Bayer, Marvyn Charles, Cherelle Jay, Rebecca McKinnis, and Chloe Pole.
Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the West End production features choreography by Kate Prince, scenic design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound design by Paul Groothuis, video by Luke Halls.
