Everybody’s Talking About JamiePlay Trailer
Funny, fabulous and feel-good – this coming-of-age musical will leave everybody talking about Jamie!
Best New Musical
WhatsOnStage Awards, London
Following a record-breaking three-year West End residency, sold-out UK & Ireland Tour and Amazon studios award-winning film, the smash-hit and critically acclaimed musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie returns to the West End at the Peacock Theatre.
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. This ‘Funny, outrageous, touching’ (Daily Telegraph), musical sensation is to be experienced by all the family and not to be missed!
Casting includes Ivano Turco as Jamie (Get Up Stand Up, Bad Cinderella), John Partridge (Cabaret, La Cage Aux Folles, Chicago, Eastenders) as Hugo/Loco Chanelle, Shobna Gulati as Ray (The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Coronation Street, Brassic), Rebecca McKinnis as Margaret (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Dear Evan Hansen, We Will Rock You, Les Miserables) and Talia Palamathanan as Pritti (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie Tour and film), with further star casting to be announced.
Set to an original score of catchy pop tunes that will ‘blow the roof of the Theatre’ (Mail on Sunday) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae (Doctor Who). Choregraphed by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince (Into The Hoods, Some Like It Hip Hop, SYLVIA, Message In A Bottle). This ‘sparking coming-of-age musical’ (The Times) will have everybody talking about Jamie for years to come.
Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
