The news comes as the country heads back into lockdown from the 5th November.

The show, which was set to re-open at the Apollo Theatre this month has pushed back its opening date to the 12th December.

In a statement released, the show said: “Following the government announcement, #JamieLondon will now be reopening to audiences on Saturday 12 December! Ticketholders of performances 28 Nov – 11 Dec will be contacted asap.”

Featuring music by The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie Sells and book and lyrics by Tom McRae, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is inspired by a documentary about Jamie Campbell, who wanted to be a drag queen at the age of 16. 

Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the cast for the show’s reopening is set to include: Noah Thomas, Melissa Jacques, Phil Nichol, Sejal Keshwala, Hiba Elchikhe and Gillian Ford.

The musical originally opened at the Sheffield Crucible in spring 2017, transferring to the West End later that year. It is also set to be released as a film in cinemas in early 2021 in which Jamie will be played by newcomer Max Harwood. Richard E Grant will take on the role of Hugo/Loco Chanel, with Sarah Lancashire playing Margaret New, Sharon Horgan as Miss Hedge and Shobna Gulati playing Ray.  

The creative team on the musical production includes: set and costumes by Anna Fleischle, choreography by Kate Prince, lighting by Lucy Carter, sound by Paul Groothuis and video by Luke Halls. Theo Jamieson is the musical supervisor, Richard Weeden the musical director, Will Burton the casting director and George Richmond-Scott the associate director.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will return to the Apollo Theatre from the 12th December. To book tickets click here or visit: Love Theatre.com, London Theatre Direct, From the Box Office, Encore Tickets or Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk.
