HistoryBuilt in 2012, The Other Palace was formerly known as the St James Theatre. Hosting a large 312 capacity main theatre space as well as a smaller 120 capacity studio, St James Theatre was best-known for hosting cabarets, live music acts and small-scale musical productions.
St James Theatre was built on the site of the former Westminster Theatre, which burned down in 2002. It then re-opened in 2012 with a production of Sandi Toksvig’s Bully Boy. Since then, the theatre has enjoyed a stream of successes, with most notable productions including the world premiere of Urinetown (2014), which later transferred to the West End's Apollo Theatre. Further stand-out musicals included Miss Atomic Bomb (2016), starring Catherine Tate, The Last 5 Years, starring Samantha Barks and Broadway's Rent.
Purchased by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 2016, the venue transformed into The Other Palace and is dedicated to hosting new and rarely-performed musicals.
The Other Palace re-opened with The Wild Party, starring Frances Ruffelle, followed by Duncan Sheik's latest musical Whisper House (2017).
