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.
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 ran in the West End’s Apollo Theatre from October 2017 to September 2021 and is now on a UK tour. The musical will also make its North American debut in January 2022 for a limited run at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles with Layton Williams and Bianca Del Rio leading the cast.
In September 2021 Amazon Prime released the original movie of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie starring Max Harwood, Sarah Lancashire, Lauren Patel, Shobna Gulati, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar, Samuel Bottomley, Sharon Horgan, and Richard E. Grant. The film has received critical acclaim and 5* reviews.
Fairy tales really do come true.
