Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s West End birthday & extension

Robin Johnson

By Robin Johnson Published 6 November 2018

It’s a hit – and we certainly do know it! The fearless and fabulous musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is celebrating its one-year West End birthday today (6 November). And its present to everybody? An extended booking period at the Apollo Theatre through to 28 September 2019.

Having originally opened at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s fairytale shows no signs of slowing down, having transferred to the West End and subsequently received 5 nominations at this year’s Olivier Awards with Mastercard ceremony, including one for Mastercard Best New Musical.

The show has also claimed 7 major other awards, released a West End cast recording, announced plans for a major film production, been screened live into over 500 cinemas across Europe (with plans for screenings across North America this winter), and welcomed in the likes of Michelle Visage to the cast. It was recently announced that Layton Williams will take on the role of Jamie from late January.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s producer, Nica Burns, said today, “It is the stuff of dreams that our home-grown British musical based on a local true story, should have found a home in the heart of the West End. We are all absolutely delighted.

“A very big thank you to our fantastic audiences that have kept us here and to everyone who has supported us so brilliantly. Please keep on talking about Jamie so we can celebrate many more birthdays!”

With songs by Dan Gillespie Sells, lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the funny, feel-good musical sensation that’s taken the West End by storm. The show follows 16-year-old Jamie New, who steps out of the shadows of prejudice to become the star he was destined to be.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
