Inspired by a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the new award-winning five-star hit musical for 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.
A twenty-four strong company and an eight-piece band 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, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been thrilling audiences and critics alike.
Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards, including Best New Musical, and nominated for 5 Olivier Awards, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie was filmed live at the Apollo Theatre in London’s Shaftesbury Avenue in 2018
