This week, RuPaul Drag Race royalty is coming to the London stage. Michelle Visage is making her West End debut in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie TONIGHT (18 October)! She will be taking on the role of Jamie’s teacher Miss Hedge – and we are gagging with anticipation. Want to know why? Here are five reasons.

1. Michelle Visage is real

Okay. So not everything about her is real. But there are no flies on her when it comes to dishing out the truth. Coming from a place of love, Michelle speaks her mind to try to make people better… it’s just not taken that way sometimes. And that delivery will be invaluable on the Apollo Theatre stage.

2. She takes as good as she gives

Michelle is known for her harsh-but-fair critiques. She’s also known for is being able to take a jab or two herself. During her time as a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, she’s been the butt of the joke more times than a piece of well-shaped foam. Always willing to laugh at herself, we’re expecting a brilliant performance void of inhibitions.

3. She can get those laughs

Whether you’re laughing at her or with her, Michelle Visage is comedy gold. Though we won’t see her witty one-liners, we’re sure she’ll bring the fire to every line she speaks, sings or raps. And if she starts laughing, you won’t stop!

4. Those reactions

Calling Michelle Visage animated is beyond an injustice. If we’ve learned anything during her time on RuPaul’s Drag Race, it’s that Michelle can serve some real energy. Will she become a scene stealer?

5. She’s an LGBTQ advocate

Despite playing the nay-saying teacher in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Michelle supports and rallies for LGBTQ rights with every breath she takes. Though she gets some flack, this ally to the cause continues to spread the love at every opportunity. So having her star in this particular show couldn’t be more right.

More of a question than a reason. Is it even drag if Michelle isn’t there? Well, yes. But she definitely makes it a million times more fabulous.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
