Out of the darkness…into the spotlight…back to the place where we belong.
Be one of the first to see Everybody’s Talking About Jamie as it triumphantly returns to the Apollo Theatre this May, making it one of the first major musicals to reopen in London! With a hotly-anticipated new film adaptation due to be released this year, everybody’s talking about our fabulous return!
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 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, and Gillian Ford, are joined by EastEnders star Shane Richie, who reprises his role as Hugo/Loco Chanelle*, as the show returns to the West End. With a twenty-five strong company and a nine-piece band, this 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 ready to be your much-needed glitter in the grey as it reopens at the Apollo Theatre.
