‘Everybody's Talking About Jamie’ to pause West End run in September
The musical is then set to return to London in 2022.
It’s the end of a school year for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in London, as they will pause their West End run. Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will play a final performance at the Apollo Theatre on 26 September, with a “pause” period ahead of returning in 2022.
“Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has come a long way from its debut in Sheffield in 2017" said producer Nica Burns. "We are delighted to be taking our story round the world and continuing to bring fun and joy and a great night out for audiences in London and across the UK for many years to come.”
After a world premiere in Sheffield, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transferred to the Apollo Theatre in November 2017, where it has played since. The musical is based on a true story, following 16-year-old Jamie as he steps into the spotlight by wearing a dress to his high school prom.
The current cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie includes Noah Thomas as Jamie. He’s joined by Shane Richie, Melissa Jacques, Sejal Keshwala, Hiba Elchikhe, Gillian Ford, Phil Nicol, Alexander Archer, Zion Battles, Marlon G. Day, James Gillan, Zahra Jones, Emily Kenwright, Keenan Knight, Jordan Laviniere, Garry Lee, David O’Reilly, Harriet Payne, Jordan Ricketts and Rachel Seiran.
