Everybody's Talking About Jamie

About this show

Out of the darkness…into the spotlight…back to the place where we belong.

Everybody is talking about the West End’s first major musical to reopen. With a hotly-anticipated new film adaptation due to be released in February 2021, be one of the first to see Everybody’s Talking About Jamie as it triumphantly returns to the Apollo Theatre and celebrates its 3rd birthday!

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 today.

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 the show’s return back to the West End, with 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).

With ‘songs that have the wow factor’ (The Times) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and ‘hilarious’ book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (WhatsOnStage), by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, feel-good, musical sensation is ready to be your much-needed glitter in the grey as it reopens at the Apollo Theatre.
