No matter how many times I see this show it never fails to deliver a spectacular evening in full technicolour.
For a show that first premiered in 2017, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie continues to go from strength to strength. The real life story of a teenager who wants nothing more than to attend his prom in a dress takes us on a journey of discovery, vulnerability, confusion and love as Jamie New navigates the life he has chosen celebrating everything that is wonderful about the LGBTQ+ community and drag as an art form. This wonderful world is shown to be an accepting place to be, despite many obstacles still in its way to this very day.
In the lead role of Jamie New for this show was Finton Flynn. Understudying this role, Flynn was able to fill those infamous red heels with gusto! He brought a freshness and energy to the role that was completely infectious, with a wonderful comedic streak and diva qualities. Not only a wonderful actor, but with a voice to match, especially during ‘The Wall In My Head’. Flynn has a very bright future ahead of him and it was a pleasure to see him shining in the spotlight.
