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. 21st June saw the show announce a thrilling transfer, moving to the West End's Apollo Theatre for a stint lasting from 6th November 2017 to 21st April 2018. The majority of the Crucible cast returns for the London run.
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!

Entertaining from the start. Colourful, fast moving,funny, emotional. Made me laugh made me cry. John McCrea faboulous throughout and Jamie as we're the rest of the cast. Few well-known faces as well as the newbies all very talented.

Allen London Box Office customer
a pleasant time
Behind a pleasant and entertaining show, a real society issue is tackled denouncing common prejudices . Even if the subject is sometimes heavy-handedly treated, the message gets through in a pleasant manner.

Top entertainment on London Pride Day
Fantastic show, moving and realistic story, wonderful acting (Jamie, Preti, mom), great music and dancing. Also loved the stage settings and changes throughout the scenes. I came with my teenaged son, both of us non-native english speakers, but this fact did not harm our good experience of the show. All together was a top entertainment on London Pride Day (July 7 2018)

Most inspiring and sensitive musical since Billy Elliot
We saw this musical with the whole family with teens. It's a touching story based on a real life "Jamie" and his experiences in a mainstream high school environment. While the actors of the main characters play superb so does the whole ensemble: Their dancing and choreographie is creative and powerfull and fit perfectly to the music that is somehow pop-like but also complex and interesting and exciting: This is clearly a must see again musical and very certainly a strong candidate for the top of the tops playlist for your mobile.
Stefan London Box Office customer
Fab show - brilliant music acting and story. Best show I’ve seen for a long time
Christopher London Box Office customer
Amazing in every way
It was so funny, and the musical numbers were insanely good. But, what struck us was how poignant it was, and how much we cried! An absolute must-see.
