What's On Stage BEST NEW MUSICAL

Michelle Visage joins the FIVE-time Olivier Award nominee from October 18

When this exuberant new musical from The Feeling's Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae premiered at the Sheffield Crucible earlier in 2017, it became an instant success with both audiences and critics. Based on the story of Jamie Campbell, a gay 16-year-old who stunned his school by heading to prom in heels and frock, Everybody's Talking About Jamie is an infectious, funny and touching exploration of sexuality, ambitions and coming of age when you're destined to stick out from the crowd.

Ranging from upbeat pop rock to glorious soulful ballads, the show is a breath of fresh air for the British musical, sitting somewhere between the struggles of Billy Elliott and the fabulousity of Kinky Boots. Original lead John McCrea reprises his heavily praised performance as Jamie alongside much of the founding cast.

Jamie who?

Growing up on a Sheffield Council Estate isn't plain sailing for teenage Jamie. Out of touch with his peers yet always ready with a comeback for his bullies, he's just not sure what the future holds. Supported by his wonderful mum and his tight knit group of pals, he sets out to confront his fate head on and become the star he was always meant to be.

Alex Wood: “A predictable cliche of a show”

I reckon Billy Elliot for the Kinky Boots generation just about sums up... more

Everything is well judged. Everything works. From the direction and choreography to the set, the lights, the score, the band. From the top of Olympus to the depths of Hades. It's heavenly.
