Everybody’s Talking About Jamie to reopen at Apollo Theatre
Performances of the hit British musical will recommence at the Apollo Theatre next month.
After six months of West End theatres being closed, it has been confirmed that Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will reopen in November. According to Nimax Theatres’ initial statement, performances will take place at the Apollo Theatre on selected dates from 12 November.
Based on a BBC documentary, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie follows Jamie New, a 16-year-old who decides to wear a dress to his high school prom. Friends and family support him as he goes on a journey of self-discovery, set to an original score by Tom MacRae and The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie Sells.
Noah Thomas makes his West End debut as the titular character, joined by Melissa Jacques as Margaret New, Sejal Keshwala as Ray and Hiba Elchikhe as Pritti Pasha.
After a world premiere at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transferred to the Apollo Theatre in 2017. The musical was nominated for five Olivier Awards in 2018 including best new musical.
The musical’s film adaptation is set for a 2021 release too. Max Harwood plays Jamie, joined by Richard E. Grant as Hugo/Loco Chanelle.
