Why Watch Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

The musical is inspired by a true story that has now become a theatrical sensation. The show’s real-life origins make it relatable, telling a uniquely inspiring yet familiar tale of a person who seeks acceptance for who they are without prejudice. Jamie’s story is a powerful one that reiterates the idea of standing up for oneself in order to get what one wants.

The Story

All 16-year-old Jamie wants to do is wear women’s clothes. This clearly doesn’t fit into the world he lives in, with his teachers even thinking that he’s fit only to be a driver! Jamie’s inspiring mother and supportive group of friends help him find his way and fight for what he believes in, allowing him to shine like the star he was always meant to be.

Critics Reviews

“What a cleverly self-fulfilling prophecy that title is. No wonder everybody’s talking about it.”
The Guardian

“The production combines slickness with the rough-and-tumble spirit of an unruly local comp.”
The Telegraph

“Everybody’s Talking About Jamie won a string of awards for its first airing in Sheffield; I reckon it might pick up a few more during this jubilant London run.”
Independent
