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.

Being so close to the stage and at the very end of the row, it meant that we sometimes lost part of the action due to the front of the stage being curved (we saw lots of backs). For the price of the ticket, we can’t complain though!! More

There is an excellent view from every seat in this theatre. The seat is comfortable and as you are on a curve of the theatre you get some extra leg room. You can see the whole stage as the seats are high so no heads in front can bother you. You are... More
