Everybody's Talking About Jamie film premieres in London

Everybody's Talking About Jamie, the film adaptation of the hit-West End musical directed by Jonathan Buttrell, will premiere on Monday 13th September 2021 in London's West End.

Richard E. Grant delivers an 'unforgettable' (Variety) performance as drag queen legend 'Loco Chanelle' and mentor to Jamie.

Talia Palamathanan and Ellis Brownhill star as Jamie's classmates, with Layton Williams featuring in Kate Prince's choreography.

The groundbreaking feel-good musical is based on the true story of Jamie Campbell, a working-class teenager who battles prejudice to fulfil his dreams of becoming the drag queen star 'Mimi Me'.
