About the Show
Nica Burns presents The Sheffield Theatres Production of EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE
Once upon a time, there was a 16-year-old boy who had a secret he wanted to tell…
So, he approached a documentary filmmaker as you do, and asked if they would help him tell it. The resulting documentary was seen by a theatre director and it inspired him to create a musical. A producing regional theatre backed him. He then bumped into a famous musical theatre star who introduced him to a well-known pop composer who was working with a lyricist and book writer. The theatre put on the production. A major producer saw it and offered them a West End theatre.
So, thanks to Jamie Campbell, Firecracker Films, Michael Ball, Sheffield Theatres and Nica Burns, this new British musical by a new British theatre writing and directing team, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie can now be seen at the Apollo Theatre.
Fairy tales really do come true.
