Jamie new, Look at you!

The smash hit of the West End ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ visits Sunderland this month to thrill theatre-goers all over again.

‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ tells the true story of Durham’s beautiful teenage drag queen Jamie Campbell. It’s a real powerhouse of a musical with the catchiest tunes, the most fantastic cast and a strong message about making your own space if you can’t fit in. If you’re not familiar with the story then it’s about Jamie New, a 16-year-old lad who is not only navigating school as a gay teenager, but, after finding out about an old queen’s past life, exploring his identity as a drag queen. It’s a real heartwarmer that was originally a documentary, and then a film, and then the iconic stage musical that we know and love today. If you’ve not had time to pop to London for the West End show, then get down to Sunderland Empire for an experience that will blow your socks off. MW

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, 19-23 September, Sunderland Empire, 7.30pm (mats Wed & Sat 2.30pm), from £13,
