Be one of the first to see Everybody’s Talking About Jamie as it triumphantly returns to the Apollo Theatre this May, making it one of the first major musicals to reopen in London! With a hotly anticipated new film adaptation due to be released this year, everybody’s talking about our fabulous return!
Inspired by a true story, it is the award-winning hit musical for today – bang up to date, more relevant than ever and specially updated for the times we live in.
Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield.
Jamie doesn’t quite fit in.
Jamie is terrified about the future.
He is going to be a sensation.
Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight.
Noah Thomas, Melissa Jacques, Sejal Keshwala, Hiba Elchikhe and Gillian Ford, are joined by EastEnders star Shane Richie, who reprises his role as Hugo/Loco Chanelle*, as the show returns to the West End. With a twenty-five strong company and a nine-piece band, this will ‘sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance’ (Financial Times).
With ‘songs that have the wow factor’ (The Times) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and ‘hilarious’ book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (Whatsonstage), by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, feel-good, musical sensation is ready to be your much-needed glitter in the grey as it reopens at the Apollo Theatre from May this year.
*Shane Richie will star as Hugo/Loco Chanelle until July 18.
The 1,000th performance of the coming-out musical was a lively, cathartic affair that swept our critic’s reservations away
This show is life-affirming, inspiring and hilarious all at once
This musical, about a 16-year-old wannabe drag queen, has an undeniable touch of magic about it
A Billy Elliot for the gender-fluid age
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a must-see musical of our time that has been given a new blast of energy for 2020
Together, all the constituent parts of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie come together to demonstrate that this is a show whose place on Shaftesbury Avenue is never going to be given up lightly
Laughter enriches this heartfelt production, that shines with lively choruses and bright staging
In a triumphant return to the stage, the entire cast and crew bring their A-game
New lead brings fresh energy to the uplifting musical about a teenage drag queen
Totally feel good and guaranteed to make you feel fabulous!
The whole evening floats on a beautifully choreographed crowd of schoolchildren – flying knees, bright blazers, excited hair. Disruptive and supportive. A true expression of this instant hit.
It’s still fun, it’s still a great West End musical, the cast just need to work a little harder to send the dialogue and lyrics out to the audience
