Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at The Lowry….Once More!
The sensational musical makes a joyous comeback to Salford - Thursday 7th to Sunday 17th September 2023!
After setting records with a three-year West End stay, completely booked UK & Ireland Tours, and the accolades from an Amazon studios award-winning film, the universally loved and critically adored musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie joyfully makes its way back to The Lowry, Salford, from Thursday 7th to Sunday 17th September 2023.
At sixteen, Jamie New resides in a council estate in Sheffield. Jamie stands out in a unique way. While Jamie might have concerns about what's ahead, everyone believes Jamie is destined to be a star. With the unwavering support of his wonderful mother and the company of his friends, Jamie triumphantly rises above challenges, dispels negativity, and confidently steps into the limelight.
Funny, fabulous and feel good, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie features an all-star cast including West End sensation Ivano Turco as Jamie, EastEnders legend John Partridge as Hugo/Loco Chanelle, Dancing on Ice royalty Hayley Tamaddon as Miss Hedge, Coronation Street’s Shobna Gulati as Ray, musical theatre star Rebecca McKinnis as Margaret and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie veteran Talia Palamathanan as Pritti.
Described as 'Hilarious, heartwarming, and touching' by the Daily Telegraph, this musical marvel is a delightful treat for families and is simply unmissable!
Featuring an uplifting original score filled with delightful pop melodies that promise to 'electrify the Theatre' (Mail on Sunday) by the talented lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and the gifted writer Tom MacRae (Doctor Who), this 'Dazzling coming-of-age musical' (The Times) will keep everyone raving about Jamie for a long, long time.
Sixteen: the age where magic happens. It's the perfect time to chase your dreams.
Steve Cowton, the enthusiastic Head of Theatres at The Lowry, expressed: "Everybody's Talking About Jamie was among the pioneering shows we showcased post-Lockdown. It was truly heartwarming to witness our audience's return, thoroughly enjoying themselves. This narrative is a reflection of our era, emphasizing diversity, inclusivity, and empathy. It promises a fantastic evening for all age groups. I'm over the moon knowing that after its previous sold-out shows, we'll be hosting this magnificent musical again at The Lowry.”
