All credit to director Jonathan Butterell, whose idea it was to turn this story into a musical in the first place, for steering it so expertly to the stage with such a solid grasp of form and structure...
Real talk: this inclusive and utterly joyful new musical has the biggest heart and the best pair of legs in the West End.
It’s great to see this fabulous, uplifting, be-yourself show still smashing it in the West End.
Dan Gillespie Sells, frontman of the The Feeling, has written an immensely attractive score – bobbing along with a melodic pop bounce and catchy rhythmic insistence and rising to the emotional occasion with some eloquently poignant power ballads.
The book and lyrics are the work of TV writer Tom MacRae, and what they lack in blazingly original storytelling they more than make up for with warmth and wit. The result is a true crowd-pleaser — big-hearted and joyous.
[Everybody’s Talking About Jamie] is a joyous punch in the air about following your dreams and being yourself. ‘Life-affirming’ is generally an over-used term, but not here. This production owns the stage.
The pace during the first half did feel a bit jerky at times, but the second never faltered. It’s the real deal, this one. Everyone really should be talking, singing, shouting about Jamie now.
Disruptive and supportive. A true expression of this instant hit. What a cleverly self-fulfilling prophecy that title is. No wonder everybody’s talking about it.
