RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage is to star in the musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

She will play Miss Hedge in the show, from October 18 to January 26, 2019.

Producer Nica Burns said: “We are all absolutely delighted to welcome Michelle Visage to the cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie as our new Miss Hedge. Michelle blew us away with her fantastic singing voice, her excellent characterisation of the part and her charismatic stage presence.”

Visage added: “The reason I chose this show in particular is because of the very important message it tells. It is a great show with great music and talent but more importantly it’s about love, truth and the tenacity of the human spirit. I can’t wait to help audiences to fall in love with the show the way I did when I saw Everybody’s Talking About Jamie for the first time.”

The show has music by Dan Gillespie Sells, and book and lyrics by Tom MacRae.

It is directed by Jonathan Butterell.
