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!
