From the current West End cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie to the latest and best ticket offers, here’s everything about the show as it performs to socially distant audiences.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie tells the story of 16-year-old Jamie New, who is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. Jamie is terrified about the future. He is going to be a sensation.
