West End musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is to be screened live in cinemas around the UK.

More2Screen will broadcast the musical to hundreds of cinemas in the UK and Ireland on July 5.

The musical will then be rolled out to cinemas worldwide in the autumn.

Written by Tom MacRae and Dan Gillespie Sells, the musical is currently running at the Apollo Theatre, where it is booking until October 6.

Nica Burns, producer and chief executive at Nimax Theatres, said: “Come to your local cinema to join our live audiences for a great night out and to share a little bit of glitter in the grey.

“And of course, a round of applause to the wonderful More2Screen for partnering us to bring Jamie’s story to hundreds of screens nationally.”

Christine Costello, chief executive at More2Screen, added: “We are very proud to be appointed by Nica Burns and Nimax Theatres to bring this fabulously successful West End production to musical theatre fans around the UK and Ireland, and then to a global audience.

“Although there have been an ever-increasing number of successful theatre events at the cinema, the live broadcast of a commercial West End musical production remains a rare occurrence.”

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is directed by Jonathan Butterell with design by Anne Fleischle and choreography by Kate Prince.
