Award-winning 5-star hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie broadcast live by satellite from the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End on Thursday 5 July 2018, followed by an encore screening on 15 July 2018.

 

Inspired by a true story, Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical, 3 UK Theatre Awards including Best New Musical and nominated for 5 Olivier Awards, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been thrilling audiences and critics alike since it opened at the Sheffield Crucible in 2017, before transferring to Shaftesbury Avenue’s Apollo Theatre. Fresh and contemporary with an extraordinary mother and son relationship at its centre, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie celebrates acceptance and belonging, and how good life is when everybody is the best they can be.

 

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

 

John McCrea, Josie Walker, Tamsin Carroll, Lucie Shorthouse and Phil Nichol lead a twenty-four strong company and an eight-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, the musical is directed by Jonathan Butterell who was inspired to create Everybody’s Talking About Jamie after watching the Firecracker documentary film about the true and remarkable story of Jamie Campbell and his mother Margaret.
