Don’t wait for tomorrow, book your tickets today. Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will pause its West End run at the Apollo Theatre on 26 September before returning in 2022.
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.
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, Gillian Ford and Phil Nichol as Hugo/Loco Chanelle, lead a twenty-five strong company and a nine-piece band that will ‘sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance’ (Financial Times).
