Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Apollo Theatre, London

The talk of London’s West End

Inspired by a true story, the fearless, funny, coming of age musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a multi-award winning show with catchy songs by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae.

Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.

What’s the Story?

Inspired by the BBC documentary ‘Jamie: Drag Queen at 16’, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the powerful story of a boy with a passion for drag.

Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. Jamie 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.

  1. Absolutely, hands down, best show I have ever seen!!!! LOVED it!!!! And Layton Williams, WOW!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!! I’m in awe…

  2. This is a don’t miss show. Lots of laughs, fabulous music and dance but also tugs at your heartstrings. John McCrae gives a knock out performance and is teamed with a talented cast; the audience was cheering, on their feet.

  3. Definitely worth seeing. Great story, great cast, great entertainment, and so well put together. John McCrae gives a stunning performance and Josie Walker knocks it out of the park!
