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 London!
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!
Funny, fabulous and feel good, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie features an all-star cast including West End sensation Ivano Turco as Jamie, musical theatre star Rebecca McKinnis as Margaret, Coronation Street and West End icon Shobna Gulati as Ray, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie veteran Talia Palamathanan as Pritti, Queen of the Jungle Giovanna Fletcher as Miss Hedge and EastEnders legend John Partridge as Hugo/Loco Chanelle.
Set to an original score of catchy pop tunes that will ‘blow the roof off the Theatre’ (Mail on Sunday) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae (Doctor Who). Choreographed by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince (Into The Hoods, Some Like It Hip Hop, SYLVIA, Message In A Bottle). This ‘sparkling 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.

Some are wearing blazers, one man wears a checked shirt and jeans, one woman wears a headscarf. They have their arms crossed, above their head or on their hips. Everyone looks carefree and happy.
