Originally based on the BBC documentary 'Jamie: Drag Queen at 16', the hit West End musical opened at the Apollo Theatre in November 2017.
The musical tells the story of Jamie, who doesn't quite fit in and is terrified about his future. Believing he is going to be a huge sensation and lovingly supported by his mom and close friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the school bullies and 'steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight'.
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie was broadcast live to cinemas in the UK in July of 2018. The live broadcast was produced by the show's stage producers Nimax Theaters to increase interest in the West End production and its upcoming UK tour.
The filmed production was later shown in US movie theaters later that year with three encore screenings in 2018.
The broadcast was not edited, and was sent to cinemas live. It was not seen in any format since, and is not currently available to stream online. The stage-to-screen version, however, is available to stream through Amazon Prime.
