Venue overview

The Other Palace, formerly the St James Theatre, has two separate performance spaces and is well-known for its diverse theatre programme, which provides a platform for new productions. Opening in 2012 on the site of the demolished Westminster Theatre, the building is designed by Foster Wilson Architects. In 2017, the renovated venue reopened as The Other Palace, after Andrew Lloyd Webber purchased the building in 2016.

The venue has hosted many original productions, including the 2014 premiere of Urinetown, as well as Putting it Together and Tell Me On a Sunday.

With the main theatre featuring a seating capacity of 312 and the smaller studio seating 120, seats can be reconfigured depending on the production. An intimate theatre, the main auditorium offers excellent views from all seats, with a steep rake and no obvious restrictions. There is a slight curve to each row, but you are able to see the whole stage from wherever you are sat.

Good value seats

Sitting in rows M-N are great value for money! These seats are usually heavily discounted but offer an amazing view of the stage. Equally, seats at the ends of rows are amazing value, as there is a great view for a fraction of other prices!

Premium seats

Sit in the mid-centre for the best overall views. If watching a musical, rows F-J are best, as they allow you to see the whole stage. Sit close-up for plays and one-off concerts.

The seat is one of the best in this theatre because it is on angle (meaning you get a little bit more room!). Legroom is always disappointing at this theatre no matter where you're sat, but the view is exceptional.... More

Fantastic view of the stage and not too far from the stage. The whole auditorium isn't too big so I reckon most seats offer decent views. The seat itself was comfy however, legroom wasn't the best (I'm 6ft tall).... More
