The Show

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a musical by Tom MacRae with music by Dan Gillespie Sells based on BBC Three’s documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16. It premiered in Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre in February 2017 and transferred to the West End in November that same year. It follows the story of Jamie, a misfit, who, with the support of his mother and friends, rises above his bullies and embraces his own identity.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is currently booking until January 2020. The Apollo Theatre opened 1901 and has been a venue for plays, musicals, operas and comedies. In December 2013, part of the theatre’s ceiling, balcony and a lighting rig collapsed. It reopened four months later.

The Apollo is owned by Nimax Theatres so their website is the best place to buy tickets. For more information on your visit to the Apollo, read our guide.
