Everybody's Talking About Jamie London: a musical with a difference
Everybody's Talking About Jamie London opened in November 2017, after the brand-new musical (written by Tom MacRae and Dan Gillespie Sells) enjoyed a highly successful opening run at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, the city in which the story is set. Based on the 2011 documentary 'Jamie: Drag Queen at 16', the story of Everybody's Talking About Jamie London follows sixteen-year-old Jamie, who lives on a council estate with his mum and wants nothing more than to be a drag queen. As he develops his alter ego Mimi Me, he faces severe bullying from his schoolmates, not to mention disapproval from his father and his teachers. With the help of his friend Pritti and his mum's incredible support, Jamie manages to prove that being unique is not something to be afraid of. It's a long road to social acceptance, however, and the musical provides an all-too-stark reminder that many people don't enjoy support from their friends, families, colleagues or peers. Despite the uplifting songs and light-hearted way in which the story is presented (musical theatre is often regarded as being simply entertaining), there's a strong message here that will stay with you for a long time. Get your tickets for Everybody's Talking About Jamie London and prepare for an unusually thought-provoking kind of show.
The talented cast of Everybody's Talking About Jamie London
Reviews of Everybody's Talking About Jamie London have proclaimed the musical to be joyous and uplifting, as well as highly commending lead John McCrea. Most of the cast of Everybody's Talking About Jamie London was in the original run in Sheffield, before transferring to the Apollo Theatre Shaftesbury Avenue for the West End engagement. After sold-out performances, the show extended its engagement twice within its first year, and a film version was announced as being in the pipeline in May 2018. The unprecedented success of the show demonstrates how musicals are moving in a different direction - stepping away from the fuzzy, feel-good-only shows like Mamma Mia or Hairspray, musicals like Dear Evan Hansen and Heathers are offering their audiences a dose of uplifting entertainment as well as a serious subject to think about. It's a new way of looking at society and politics, and one that looks set to stay around for some time.
