History

Originally built in 2012 under the name of the St James Theatre, The Other Palace is the brand new venue that officially opened in 2017. Hosting a 312 capacity main theatre space as well as a smaller 120 capacity studio, the theatre is synonymous with playing new musical works and small-scale cabarets.

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 TateThe 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 venue re-opened under the leadership of Paul Taylor Mills in February 2017 with The Wild Party, starring Frances Ruffelle.

Further musicals include Duncan Sheik’s early musical Whisper House (2017), followed by circus extravaganza La Strada (2017). A series of new musicals premiered at the venue throughout 2017, including The Little Beasts, the National Youth Music Theatre's Imaginary and Some Lovers, by Steven Sater and Burt Bacharach. 2017 rounded off with Hershey Felder Our Great Tchaikovsky and Hollywood star Kelsey Grammer in Big Fish the Musical.

2018 began with Ben Adams' smash-hit new musical Eugenius!, followed by new musicals Myth the Musical, Orpheus - The Musical, Tess of the d'Ubervilles and Jabberwocky. Hollywood star Kathleen Turner arrived at the venue with cabaret show Finding My Voice, followed by Carrie Hope Fletcher and Jamie Muscato in Heathers the Musical, the return of Eugenius! and musical show Liza Pulman Sings Streisand.

September 2019 saw the UK premiere of the Tony Award-winning musical Falsettos. In November 2019, Amelie the Musical began performances, following a UK tour.

2020 kicked off with the Broadway transfer of Joe Iconis and Joe Tracz's cult musical Be More Chill, which plays at the venue through to May.

In September - December 2023, Ian McKellen and Roger Allam starred in new two-hander comedy Frank and Percy for a limited season.

Hit jukebox show Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical opens in London at The Other Palace in 2024.
