VIDEO: EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE Lights Up The Stage at West End Live
West End's free outdoor performance event West End Live has kicked off today! Lighting up the stage was the smash hit new musical Everybody's Talking About Jamie. Watch the cast's performance below!
Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn't quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. Jamie is going to be a sensation.
Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight. Sixteen: the edge of possibility. Time to make your dreams come true.
The show was recently nominated for five Olivier Awards, including Outstanding Achievement In Music, Best Theatre Choreographer (Kate Prince), Best Actor In A Musical (John McCrea), Best Actress In A Musical (Josie Walker), and Mastercard Best New Musical.
