A new musical for today: Based on true events, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a brave, reckless and unconventional tale about finding yourself and being who you want to be, with songs by The Feeling's Dan Gillespie Sells. Opening to five-star reviews at the West End's Apollo Theatre following the show’s sell-out run at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, you'll definitely be talking about Jamie and his inspirational story long after the curtain falls. Jamie really is the name on everybody’s lips!

Inspired by the BBC documentary ‘Jamie: Drag Queen at 16’, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the powerful story of a boy with a secret passion for drag.
Jamie New lives on a council estate in Sheffield, and he doesn’t quite fit in. Supported by his incredible mother Margaret, Jamie overcomes the prejudice that he faces and decides to make his dreams come true. Nobody can tell Jamie that he can’t, and soon his drag persona Mimi Me takes centre stage.
