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.

John McCrea reprises his role of Jamie, with the majority of the original cast joining him for the London run. Rebecca McKinnis (Mamma Mia!, We Will Rock You) steps into the role of Margaret New and Lee Ross (Eastenders) takes on the part of Hugo/Loco. Michelle Visage makes her West End musical debut in the role of Miss Hedge. From 28th January 2019, the starring role of Jamie will be played by Layton Williams. At this time, Shane Ritchie will take over the part of Hugo/Loco Chanelle.

They are joined Shobna Gulati as Ray, Lucie Shorthouse as Pritti Pasha, Alex Anstey as Laika Virgin, James Gillan as Tray Sophisticay, Daniel Jacob as Sandra Bollock, Ken Christiansenas Jamie’s Dad and Luke Baker as Dean Paxton, as well as Courtney Bowman, Jordan Cunningham, Daniel Davids, Ryan Hughes, Harriet Payne, Shiv Rabheru, Lauran Rae and Kirstie Skivington.

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.

Please be aware that Michelle Visage will not be performing on Saturday 22nd December and Monday 24th December.
