Experience this uplifting, feel-good British phenomenon with Everybody’s Talking About Jamie tickets

Sheffield Theatres’ critically acclaimed, award-winning production Everybody’s Talking About Jamie plays at the West End’s Apollo Theatre, following a smash-hit run at Sheffield Crucible. A brand new British musical by composer and lyricist duo Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae, the uplifting coming-of-age story continues to play to packed-out London audiences.

Growing up on a grim Sheffield council-estate, Jamie finds a way to overcome the prejudice and battle the bullies to step into the spotlight. Everybody’s Talking About Jamie premiered at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre in February 2017 and transferred to the West End in November the same year. It has since been nominated for multiple Olivier Awards and has won several WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical.

A fearless, funny and fabulous musical about sashaying out of the darkness, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie proves that dreams really can come true.
