Inspired by a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the multi-award-winning musical that’s been wowing audiences and critics alike.
Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in and is terrified about the future but he is going to be a sensation.
Supported by his loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight.
The feel-good musical stars John McCrea, Rebecca McKinnis, Tamsin Carroll, Shobna Gulati, Lucie Shorthouse and Lee Ross who lead a twenty-four strong company and an eight-piece band that will ‘sweep you away on a tide of mischief, warmth and exuberance’ (Financial Times). With ‘songs that have the wow factor’ (The Times) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and ‘hilarious’ book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (Whatsonstage), by writer Tom MacRae.
WINNER of THREE WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical
Nearly 140 years ago brothers Giacomo and Battista Monico opened a side-street cafe in London’s West End. While the majority of their neighbours were demolished in 1885 to make way for the construction of Shaftesbury Avenue, the brothers expanded their premises and thrived for another generation before the site finally succumbed to the expansion of Piccadilly Circus in the 1950s. Today Soho House, Cafe Monico’s vintage decor is nestled in between two theatres on Shaftsbury Avenue, perfect for a pre or post theatre meal.
