The Other Palace
Formerly the St. James Theatre, The Other Palace opened its doors in February 2017, and is a home and breeding ground for musicals at various stages of development. The Other Palace focuses on four key areas: programming, creative use of spaces, musical theatre development and audience engagement. West End premieres have taken place at The Other Palace, including Amelie, Be More Chill and Heathers.
The main theatre is the heart of The Other Palace, where the programme will consist of full productions, work in progress productions and festivals of new work.
By day, the studio is available for composers, librettists, lyricists, directors and choreographers to discover and create new material. By night, the space builds on the current St. James Studio model to offer a diverse programme including cabaret, music, musical theatre and crossover acts. A series of unique platforming opportunities for musical theatre in development takes place in the studios. The theatre also features an open mic bar.
