Everybody's Talking About Jamie's John McCrea
Updated: Sep 24, 2019
John McCrea is the breakout West End star of the last year. He’s currently strutting in heels as Jamie New one of the most recent new British musicals to hit the West End, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
John created the role of Jamie in the first workshop of the show in 2014. It was first fully produced in Sheffield before transferring to London at the end of last year.
I went to meet him at the Apollo Theatre on one of the hottest days of the year. We talked about how the show was developed, how he found ‘his Jamie’ and how he feels about bidding farewell to his on-stage mother, Josie Walker who left the show at the weekend.
