Everybody's Talking About Jamie

Now booking until October 2018!

A brand new musical based on the BBC Three documentary "Jamie: Drag Queen at 16" following real-life teenager Jamie Campbell, who wants to be a drag queen.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie
, a fearless, funny, and fabulous new musical sensation with catchy songs by Dan Gillespie Sells (lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling) and writer Tom MacRae, comes to the Apollo Theatre.

At sixteen years old, Jamie New lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Though Jamie doesn’t quite fit in and is terrified about the future, he knows one thing: Jamie is going to be a sensation.
Supported by friends and a brilliant, loving mum, Jamie struggles past prejudice and bullies to step out of the darkness and into the spotlight. The Observer calls this brand-new musical: “touching, funny, joyous.”

“Touching, Funny, Joyous” - The Observer

  • Well worth a visit

    20 May 2018

    Really enjoyed this show - particularly as it was based on a true story. Lead actor was excellent. Choreography very good. Set was interesting and involved minimum of fuss when there were scene changes. Would recommend this show. Very appreciative audience.

  • Toe tapping heaven.

    13 May 2018

    Everybody's talking about Jamie is an exceptional show that makes you cry and laugh in equal measures. It's about a young person's journey to find and accept himself in a society that's becoming more tolerant but still has work to do. The script is laugh out loud funny. The music and songs make you want to join in. The acting is exceptional particularly Jamie and his mother. I hope this show runs and runs

  • "This fizzing musical is a blast of fresh air, and what a joy to see a stageful of youngsters who look like swathes of modern Britain: young, poor, sassy, not to mention black, brown, white and, er, sparkly. For this is the story of a 16-year-old boy named Jamie New, with giraffe legs and a magnetic smile, whose career adviser at his rough school in Sheffield has a message."

    The Times

  • "Feelgood musical that could become a cult classic... McCrea doesn’t have quite the showstopping voice you’d hope for in the lead, but he has bags of charisma, and only the most stony of hearted would fail to wish his character the happy – if somewhat confectedly feel-good – conclusion that he’s given."
