Everybodyโ€™s Talking About Jamie REVIEW

On Wednesday the 24th of October I was lucky enough to see Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at the Apollo Theatre in London for the second time, this time with the lovely Luke Bayer on as Jamie New. I was beyond excited to have the opportunity to see Luke on as Jamie, and I went in with very high expectations and oh boy did he exceed them! Luke’s performance was emotive, compelling, hilarious (the eyebrow fiasco scene will be one of my favourite parts) and unbelievably captivating.

Every show I go to there are usually a couple of people whose performance really wows me, this time it was Lucie Shorthouse who plays Pritti Pasha, Melissa Jacques who was on as Margaret New and of course the wonderful Luke Bayer.

Lucie’s performance was once again absolutely outstanding. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get enough of her singing It Means Beautiful. I have a feeling that she is going to be one to watch on the theatre scene!

He’s My Boy once again brought tears to my eyes. Melissa Jacques voice and the immense emotion of her performance made it my favourite rendition of the song.

The staging of Jamie is really well executed, especially the story telling in The Legend of Loco Chanel.

The costumes in the show are well designed, from the school uniforms to the whacky get-up of the drag queens and Jamie’s dresses.

The show is truly a treat to watch!

RATING: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

You can catch Luke Bayer on as Jamie on Monday Evening and Wednesday Matinees until the 26th of January 2019

I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time and have attempted to many times before but not had the time to keep up to date with it. But now I do have the time and so I decided to make a proper go of it. I guess I’m writing this blog for myself as much as I am for people to read. I’ve struggled with my mental health for a long while so Im hoping that writing a blog about the things I love as well as mental health will help me along the way and maybe other people! Who knows?

I love the theatre and books so a lot of the content on here will probably revolve around that along with some personal posts and just my thoughts on things.

I hope you like my blog!
