  • Everybody's Talking About Jamie: Inspired by a True Story

    Why is Everybody Talking About Everybody’s Talking About Jamie?

    Everybody's Talking About Jamie took 2018 by storm, wiping the floor with the competition at the WhatsOnStage awards, whilst gaining significant recognition with five nominations for the Laurence Olivier Awards. Aside from the tear – jerker of a storyline, the musical score of Dan Gillespie Sells is equally as impressive, particularly given that it’s his debut as a musical theatre composer and orchestrator. Directed by Jonathan Butterell, Everybody ' s Talking About Jamie was inspired by a documentary about a 16 – year – old boy with a secret that he wanted to get off his chest. Fortunately, the Sheffield Theatres were inspired to go the whole hog and turn this enchanting documentary into a fully – fledged musical.

    A Heart-Warming Tale of Overcoming Prejudice

    Jamie New is a teenage boy from the heart of Sheffield living a humble life on a council estate. Despite having a good family life, he struggles to fit in and is terrified about the future for one big reason: his desire to be a drag queen is holding him back from being himself. Jamie is living a lie. But, with the love and support of his brilliant mum and school friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice and the bullies in the local community to step out of the darkness and firmly into the spotlight – and boy, does he make an impact! This fun, fabulous musical has a score that will have your feet tapping throughout, courtesy of a nine– piece backing band. Meanwhile, Jamie is portrayed by TV star Layton Williams. He is joined on stage by EastEnders’ stunning Rita Simons as Miss Hedge and Coronation Street star Marlon G Day as Jamie ' s Dad, and the queen of queens Bianca Del Rio returns as Hugo/Loco Chanelle for a strictly limited run from 9 December.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can’t understand the fuss of this show I had my reservations seeing this as I loathed the documentary and the person this musical is based on. I only was tempted seeing it because of Layton Williams playing the lead. He was of course excellent in the title role as was everyone one else in the production. I did however felt the whole concept of the show was somewhat under developed and a bit amateur in places. I felt that there was something missing but wasn’t quite sure what that was. The music was very nothing and the lyrics in places were cringe worthy, all forgotten once the numbers ended. It was entertaining and didn’t hate it but didn’t love it either. It was ok if not a tad naff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite show of the year so far I went to this event with my partner, we were disappointed by the poor turnout for this streaming of everybody’s talking about Jamie , but as soon as the show started it was as if you were watching in a theatre, the sound and atmosphere of the streaming were fantastic, there were times when I got so involved I wanted to get up on my feet and clap with the audience, a superb show with really good original songs and a wonderful cast of actor singers . I could have watched it all over again
