Inspired by a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the new multi-award-winning musical for today.
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.
Shobna Gulati, best known for playing Sunita Alahan in ITV’s Coronation Street and Anita in Dinnerladies, joined the show on 7 May to play the role of Ray alongside cast members John McCrea, Josie Walker, Tamsin Carroll, Lucie Shorthouse and Phil Nichol who 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, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been wowing audiences and critics alike.
WINNER of THREE WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical and nominated for FIVE Olivier Awards
