Back Everybody’s Talking About Jamie
Currently booking until 29 August 2021
Out of the darkness…into the spotlight…back to the place where we belong.
Everybody is talking about the West End’s first major musical to reopen. With the hotly-anticipated film adaptation launching worldwide on Amazon Prime Video from 17 September, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has triumphantly returned to the Apollo Theatre.
Inspired by a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie 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, Gillian Ford and special guest star Shane Richie as Hugo/Loco Chanelle, lead a twenty-five strong company and a nine-piece band with songs by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and book and lyrics by writer Tom MacRae.
The UK tour of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will recommence in September 2021. West End star Layton Williams reprises the role of Jamie New. Straight from the West End, Shane Richie will play Hugo/Loco Chanelle from 1 September until 20 November with Roy Haylock, also known as his drag alter ego Bianca Del Rio, winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, playing the role from 23 November until 8 January. Shobna Gulati also re-joins the cast to play Ray. The tour will open at The Lowry, Salford Quays, on 1 September before touring the UK.
