About Everybody's Talking About Jamie
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie premiered at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017. As well as receiving five-star reviews, the production has won eight major awards, including the UK Theatre and WhatsOnStage Awards for Best New Musical and the Attitude Culture Award. It was also nominated for five Oliviers.
With the hotly anticipated film adaptation launching worldwide from 17 September 2021, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has triumphantly returned to the Apollo Theatre in the West End, where it will play until 26 September 2021 and then go on a short pause before returning again in 2022.
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 today.
Jamie New is 16 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 lead a 25-strong company accompanied by a nine-piece band that will "sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance" (Financial Times). Special guest stars Shane Richie (until 18 July 2021) and Phil Nichol (from 20 July 2021) also appear as Hugo/Loco Chanelle.
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.
