JAMIE GETS OPENING DATE IN THE STATES: Its time to step into the spotlight. Everybodys Talking About Jamie, the Olivier-nominated West End musical based on the true story of a teenage boy who wants to wear a dress to his high school prom, will be making its North American debut at L.A.s Ahmanson Theatre as part of Centre Theatre Groups upcoming season. According to The Los Angeles Times, the musical is set to play from January 16, 2022 through February 20.

Jonathan Butterell will direct. Inspired by the 2011 documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, the musical follows the title character who, after receiving pushback when he announces he will wear a dress to prom, overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness and into the spotlight. The West End production garnered five Olivier Award nominations in 2018, including one for Best Musical.

Directed by Jonathan Butterell, Everybodys Talking About Jamie features a book and lyrics by Tom MacRae and music by Dan Gillespie Sells. Casting for the North American production will be announced at a later date. A new release date for a film adaptation of the musical will be announced later.

The West End production is set to return to the Apollo Theatre on May 20.
