Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, the award-winning fabulous and feel good musical sensation, is delighted to announce that actor, comedian and presenter Rufus Hound and actor, writer and comedian Katy Brand will be joining the cast this March to play Hugo/Loco Chanelle and Miss Hedge at the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End.
Katy Brand said: Joining the cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a truly thrilling opportunity for me. If I could tell my teenage self that I would one day have the chance to perform in a huge hit show on the West End stage, that girl would pinch herself. Jamie gets to realise his dream every night, and now so do I!
Rufus Hound said: I’m absolutely thrilled to be going into the cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie – a brilliant, brave and British smash hit. I have been waxing for the last year in anticipation and am currently so tucked I may as well be a Ken doll. Bring. It. On.
