Everybody’s Talking About Jamie extends as A Guide For The Homesick ends

Thursday, 15th Nov 2018  

It is that time again in which updates emerge for some of the shows running in London’s West End. In this case the good news comes from Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, which has added new dates to its run at the Apollo Theatre. Meanwhile, producers of A Guide For The Homesick at the Trafalgar Studios are making a final push ahead of that shows’ closure at the end of November.

Both shows have received positive reviews, with Everybody’s Talking About Jamie arguably one of the most acclaimed musicals running in the capital and A Guide For The Homesick receiving praise from critics during its European Premiere run.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the musical production that is based on the BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen At 16 and tells the story of the titular Jamie, who wishes to swap trousers for a dress at a high school dance, which puts him at odds with those around him as he tries to find himself amongst unforgiving peers.

It features musical numbers like The Wall In My Head, If I Met Myself Again, It Means Beautiful, Ugly In This Ugly World and Out Of Darkness (A Place Where We Belong), amongst others.

The production extends at the Apollo Theatre, where it has been running since November 2017, and it is now booking to Saturday 28th September 2019.

Meanwhile, A Guide For The Homesick is a smaller production running at the intimate Trafalgar Studios 2 and whilst its booking period has not changed, it is nearing the end of its run at the end of November.

Set in Amsterdam, it involves two strangers, Jeremy (Douglas Booth) and Teddy (Clifford Samuel) who arrive in the city separately and are on the lookout for different things. But when they wind up in a hotel room together it leads to soul searching and confessions.

A Guide For The Homesick is written by Ken Urban and is directed by Jonathan O’Boyle. Having opened at the Trafalgar Studios 2 in mid-October, it will close its doors there on Saturday 24th November 2018.
