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.
Filled with catchy new songs from writer Tom MacRae and Dan Gillespie Sells of The Feeling, this hearty production opened to rave five-star reviews in the West End following the show’s sell-out run at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre.
We can guarantee that you WILL be talking about Jamie and his inspirational story long after the curtain falls, so be a superstar and join in on the hype. Jamie really is the name on everybody’s lips!
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is brought to you by a stellar cast.
The award-wining John McCrea reprises his performance as Jamie New, and is joined by Josie Walker, Mina Anwar, Tamsin Carroll, Daniel Anthony, Luke Baker, Courtney Bowman, James Gillian, Harriet Payne, Shiv Rabheru, Lucie Shorthouse and Kirstie Skivington, all of whom performed in the show in Sheffield.
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 Fifi La True takes centre stage.
