West End hit Everybody's Talking About Jamie could be coming to Broadway!
Dan Gillespie Sells, who composed the music for the show, says the team is in talks to bring to show to New York, but nothing is confirmed, according to London Evening Standard.
"I'm just going to keep my fingers crossed about Broadway," Gillespie Sells said. "We would love to keep on telling the story and take it around the world. Who knows - it's just talks at this stage.
