About Everybody's Talking About Jamie Tickets

Everybody's Talking About Jamie description

Great musicals don't get much newer than this, a brilliant contemporary show that enjoyed its world première at Sheffield’s famous Crucible Theatre in February 2017, directed by Jonathan Butterell.

This show already has excellent credentials. The Times' critic said, “I gave it a very rare five stars. The moment it ended the entire audience rose up as one. I think that it has such an impact for the same reason that Dear Evan Hansen, the musical that just cleaned up the Tony Awards in New York, is such a success." In her opinion it's 'hit material' and deserves a West End run.

This is the story of Jamie, a 16 year old lad from County Durham whose ambition is to become a famous drag queen. You can expect a touching and occasionally outrageous musical, wonderfully exuberant, a truly memorable and unusual coming-of-age tale that's both funny and joyful. As the Daily Telegraph reviewer Dominic Cavendish said, “I can’t think of a musical that has set me spinning right round (like a record, baby) quite as much as this funny, outrageous, touching but oh-my-word PC flag-waving show...The show sends you out on a feel-good bubble of happiness.

This fresh new British musical is a courageous piece, a defiant and brave exploration of the nature of difference. If you love the music, you're not the only one. There's also an excellent concept album available featuring John McCrea, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Betty Boo, Dan Gillespie Sells and Josie Walker.

As the character Jamie says, “sometimes you just have to grab life by the balls”. This musical does exactly that, a crowd pleaser that's happy-go-lucky on the surface, but also reveals the emotional cost of being different, often a high cost even in today's enlightened times. Your thoughts will be well and truly provoked!

Excellent show, thought provoking and emotional

An amazing show. Fabulous songs, some toe tapping and jolly and some heart rending and will give you a tear in your eye (in my case when Jamie's Mum sings He's My Boy).All the actors and actresses were fabulous with great enthusiasm and energy.

Second time I have seen the show and i enjoyed it as much as the first time. The only negative for me was adding covid into the story. Was it necessary? Did it add anything to the storyline? I go to the theatre to escape the realities of the pandemic for a short time.

Vibrant and topical

Excellent singing and dancing based on the true story of a young man and his search to reveal his true identity.

Reviewed on 03 July 2021 by , Hook, United Kingdom

Relatable and inspiring

A very relatable show. A story that I am pleased has been told. The acceptance and tolerance within schools although improving still isn't there yet and this story helps portray the fights many teenagers go through for not feeling they fit in. Loved how each character had their own story to tell of anguish, sadness and pain, but also love, happiness and inner strength. Each cast member was as strong as the next and it never fails to make you smile how each performance is so well put together, from every note of a instrument to a glance in the right direction just at the right time. A heartwarming performance, that both myself and partner would see again.

A great show

A fantastic first show back after the lockdown! The show was full of energy with lively songs and a strong but simple storyline. The costumes were colourful and the dancing was full of energy. All the main characters were awesome especially Shanie Richie who was especially dynamic. A must see Show!!

Overall the music was good and singing by the lead females e.g.mother, Jamie’s schoolfriend and the drag queens very good .Sadly I found Jamie’s singing flat and lazy....and the story predictable and pretty weak.

Overall a really good show.

We really enjoyed the show, the story is great, the songs, acting and dancing are good. Jamie’s mother in particular had a fabulous voice and Jamie’s friend also sang well. Unfortunately however, the voice of the guy who played Jamie wasn’t great. He was frequently out of tune. It didn’t spoil the performance, we thoroughly enjoyed the show, ( and he can act and dance), but it certainly detracted from it.

Energetic, emotional, vibrant and brilliant

The energy of the show was phenomenal, what an absolute joy to see. A real feel good which left us buzzing. A story about people and emotions, love and rejection, understanding and acceptance, humour and sadness, love and living to be who you are. Attended with someone who was sceptical about the story content and then absolutely loved it.

Tailor made for the Me Me Me Millenials

Under-20s (plenty in the audience) clearly loved the show. Not sure about everyone else though! The heavily accented dialogue and lyrics were at times almost impossible to follow from where we sat. And a bit of a shame that Jamie isn't remotely bothered about making the world a better place – life is most definitely all about him, end of. No wonder his drag queen alias is Me Me Me!

Mind opener!

This show is truly a mind opener. A must see for everyone, as it shows the social struggles that all of us have to deal with and overcome in life. Follow your own goals and do your own thing, sounds easy to follow, but the reality is that many times, we are being led by what others tell us and not by what we truly want ourselves. This show is all about that and therefore truly something everyone should see, as it could help our society to be less judgemental and more understanding. On top of this the shows offers very contemporary songs, music and settings, to which everyone can relate. Must go!

Beatiful show concerning everyday topics

The show in general is pretty average, nothing but the skills of the young boys and girls is completely shown. The story is pretty basic and average, and so are the songs and the show features. But I recommend it especially for families, teens and queer boys and girls who are familiar with this world. Not the best musical I've ever seen but still pretty good.

I went to this show as a visitor from Australia. Based on the reviews I thought it would be a professional Westend production just as I've seen in the past. However it turned out to be a show put on by people from the north of England. We couldn't understand half of the accents and what was being said. There was no money spent on backdrops or costumes. We spent time getting dressed for a wonderful night at the theatre, but most of the audience had made no effort at all to get changed. I won't be attending another Westend production after this experience, not with the cost of the tickets...
