“I am extremely excited to be part of a show that makes the audience feel so elated, and reminds us all that being unafraid to do and be whoever you want to be can be extremely powerful.”
Producer Nica Burns said: “As Everybody’s Talking About Jamie starts its third fabulous year in the West End, we are delighted to welcome back the equally fabulous Roy Haylock/Bianca Del Rio as Hugo /Loco Chanelle and the much-loved musical theatre and TV star Preeya Kalidas as Miss Hedge.
