Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae’s new coming-of-age musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transfers to the West End, following rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Previously enjoying a smash-hit run at Sheffield Crucible, the production comes to London’s Apollo Theatre for a run beginning in November.

Based on a true documentary, the musical follows a sixteen year old boy from a council estate in Sheffield who struggles to fit in at school. Terrified about the future and trying to find his feet after his Dad leaves home, Jamie is destined to become something sensational. Supported by his dedicated Mum and multiple friends, Jamie finds a way to overcome prejudice and beat the bullies, fearlessly making his way into the centre spotlight.

Layton Williams (RENT, Bad Education) stars as Jamie New. He is joined by Mellisa Jacques (Kinky Boots) as Margaret New, Rita Simons (Eastenders) as Miss Hedge, Phil Nichol (Man Down, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) as Hugo/Loco Chanelle, Sejal Keshwala (Bend it Like Beckham) as Ray and Sabrina Sandhu (East is East) as Pritti.

From 19th November, the role of Miss Hedge will be played by Preeya Kalidas (Eastenders, Bend it Like Beckham). For 12 weeks from 9th December, drag star and Jamie-fan favourite Bianca Del Rio will be returning to the role of Hugo/Loco Chanelle. Last but not least, from January 6th, newcomer and Mountview student Noah Thomas will take over the leading role of Jamie.

A new British musical created by Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is brought to the West End by prolific producer Nica Burns. Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the production features design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound design by Paul Groothius and choreography by Kate Prince.

A brilliantly uplifting story of facing your fears in modern society, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie transferred to the Apollo Theatre for a run beginning 6th November 2017, with an official opening night on 22nd November 2017.
