Everybody's Talking About Jamie at The Lowry, Salford, 1–12 September 2021, from £15 - Book now

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is one of the biggest productions to head to Manchester since the pandemic.

The show first wowed audiences at Sheffield Crucible in 2017 before transferring to the West End later that year. Since then, the musical has taken the entertainment world by storm with a big-screen adaptation, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie: The Movie, hitting Amazon Prime later this month and a North American premiere planned for next year.

One of the biggest productions to head to Manchester since the pandemic.

Inspired by a 2011 BBC real-life documentary, ‘Jamie: Drag Queen at 16’, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie charts the story of Sheffield teenager Jamie New and his journey ‘out of the darkness’ to becoming a drag queen.

Shining bright and completely loveable…West End star Layton Williams reprises his role as Jamie.

The show features West End star Layton Williams as he reprises his role from the critically acclaimed West End production. Shining bright and completely loveable, he plays the role with a delicate vulnerability and loads of charm. The supporting cast are equally fabulous too: Shane Richie as Jamie’s mentor Hugo aka drag queen Loco Chanelle; Shobna Gulati as quick-witted family friend Ray and Sharan Phull as Jamie’s best friend Pritti. And Amy Ellen Richardson deserves a special mention – giving an outstanding performance as Jamie’s mum Margaret.

With direction by Jonathan Butterell, an original score of catchy pop tunes by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells and Tom MacRae’s snappy script, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is absolutely unmissable.
