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 that 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 your much-needed glitter in the grey.
