Everybody’s Talking about Jamie
June 5, 2019 - July 5, 2019£24 – £30
Everyone’s Talking about Jamie is back with a fresh new cast! Until January 2020.
Witness the trill of a musical about a teen drag queen who makes it in London. The real life story is inspired by a 2011 BBC documentary about the life of 16-year-old Jamie and his journey and struggles of becoming who he wants to be.
The popping stages, beautiful stage plus video projection scenes will vow you. Director Jonathan Butterell brings out the energy of being a teenager. The stage is further brought to life with music. Playing numbers that are a mix of catch, pop-honed foot-tappers that will keep you humming the song.
Layton Williams,Rebecca McKinnis, Sejal KeshwalaandSabrina Sandhuare joined by RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio / Roy Haylockas Loco Chanelle /Hugo and Strictly Come Dancing finalist and Steps star Faye Tozeras Miss Hedge. They lead a twenty-five strong company and a nine-piece band that will ‘sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance’ (Financial Times).
With ‘songs that have the wow factor’ (The Times) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and ‘hilarious’ book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (Whatsonstage), by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been wowing audiences and critics alike.
Supporting characters such as Jamie’s best friends Pritti who wants to be a doctor and Lucie bring a fun tone to the story. Jamie’s mum Josie who raised him alone is a straight forward no monkey-business kinda woman.
