First up, for those that are yet to see the musical, there is not much to say except, add it to your 2021 London shows bucket list because this is not to be missed! The musical is based on the true story of a teenage boy who despite being bullied, shares his secret with the world and makes his dreams comes true. It’s a real tale of bravery, adversary and fabulousness and it’s the perfect tonic for your return back to Theatreland. When I went to see the show, I recall feeling so happy, energetic and above all, inspired to take on the world!
In part one of our vlog series, Hiba Elchikhe (plays Pritti Pasha) and David O’Reilly (plays Laika Virgin) take us behind-the-scenes and into the dressing rooms of the glittering cast members. Find out more about the roles that each cast member plays, how they’re feeling about returning #BackOnStage and check out what they get up to before a performance including make-up, warm-ups (and naps!) You’ll even get a taster of how it feels to be behind-the-scenes at the Apollo Theatre while Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is playing with a little backstage tour. Check it out!
Episode two sees the Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s cast in warm-ups and rehearsals, dressing room tours and interviews, and find out what goes on backstage during the show!
In the third and final episode, experience backstage life at Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s on the day of a performance at the Apollo Theatre.
