Everybodys Talking About Jamie celebrates this month its first successful year in the West End! After premiering at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield in February last year, the new show, also known as Jamie Musical, began previews at the Apollo Theatre in London West End on 6 November 2017 with official opening night on 22 November 2017. The musical has now extended until 28 September 2019!
Based on the true story of 16-year-old Jamie Campbell, portrayed in the 2011 documentary ‘Jamie: Drag Queen at 16’, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a hymn to freedom and self expression. Jamie is 16, is gay, is funny and wants to go to his school prom in a frog. Supported by his mother and his friends, he’s going to defeat prejudice and become a glittering sensation!
Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the hit musical is written by Tom MacRae with music by the lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells. Jamie is currently played by John McCrea, who originated the role in Sheffield, until 26 January. Layton Williams will then take over from 28 January 2019. The show also stars ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ judge Michelle Visage, making her West End debut as Miss Hedge.
With an hilarious book, feel – good songs and exuberant musical numbers, Jamie Musical is a celebration of all the people who stand up for themselves!
