Once upon a time there was a 16-year-old boy who had a secret he wanted to tell…
So, he approached a documentary filmmaker as you do, and asked if they would help him tell it. The resulting documentary was seen by a theatre director and it inspired him to create a musical. A producing regional theatre backed him. He then bumped into a famous musical theatre star who introduced him to a well-known pop composer who was working with a lyricist and book writer. The theatre put on the production. A major producer saw it and offered them a West End theatre.
So, thanks to Jamie Campbell, Firecracker Films, Michael Ball, Sheffield Theatres and Nica Burns, a new British musical by a new British theatre writing and directing team, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie opened at the Apollo Theatre on Wednesday 22 November 2017.
Fairy tales really do come true.
Hilarious and hard-hitting in equal measure, this is a great British musical not to be missed. I don’t like this show. I love it. Read the full review

Jamie doesn’t quite fit in.
Jamie is terrified about the future.
Jamie is going to be a sensation.
