Watch the sparkling first trailer for new musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie
A first trailer for new musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie has debuted online. Click below to watch it:
The musical follows Jamie, a 16-year-old teenager who is being bullied at school and struggling to come to terms with his sexuality. We watch as he overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness to become a drag queen.
Tom MacRae and The Feeling's Dan Gillespie Sells, who collaborated for the musical, have provided the screenplay, while Jonathan Butterell, who developed the musical, directs.
The musical is inspired by the 2011 television documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, which told the real-life story of Jamie Campbell, who wished to attend his school prom in drag.
Newcomer Max Harwood plays Jamie, with Richard E. Grant, Sharon Horgan, Sarah Lancashire and Shobna Gulati among the supporting cast.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will be released into UK cinemas in February 2021.
