Whisper House tickets

Tony Award-winning composer Duncan Sheik brought his latest thrilling rock musical to The Other Palace, formerly the St James Theatre. Conceived by Keith Powell, Whisper House is a haunting new musical that features a spellbinding rock score. Having opened in April 2017, Whisper House ran for a limited season until May 27th 2017.

Set at the height of the Second World War, Whisper House takes place inside an eerie lighthouse on the remote and isolated East Coast of America. When Christopher’s father’s plane is shot down, he finds a place to stay at the spooky lighthouse, encountering an Aunt he has never met and a rather mysterious Japanese housekeeper.

When he begins to hear strange whisperings through the walls, he must decide if it’s a friendly sound or something far more sinister… A tale about embracing the unknown and facing your fears, Whisper House combines mesmerising magical illusions with thumping, heart-stopping music that creates a haunting story to touch the soul.

Featuring music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik, who is best known for Broadway successes Spring Awakening and American Psycho, Whisper House features a book and additional lyrics by Obie Award-winning Kyle Jarrow.

Whisper House features an exciting cast, including Simon Bailey, Nicholas Goh, Simon Lipkin, Niamh Perry and Dianne Pilkington.

Following the run of The Wild Party, Whisper House is the second production to open at The Other Palace, which was taken over by Andrew Lloyd Webber to present new and rarely seen musicals. Whisper House opened on April 6th and ran until May 27th 2017, having had an official opening on April 18th 2017.

Performance dates: 26 May 2017 - 27 May 2017

Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes (including interval)

Age recommendation: Suitable for ages 8+

Special notice: Fans of Spring Awakening will recognise Duncan Sheik’s typical rock score in this mesmerising new production.

Wonderful show - not really a musical/play in its own right but an immersive combination of the two. Beautiful music played by a small band on-stage left and right and sung by the small cast of 6 actors (Niamh Perry and Simon Bailey are an outstanding pair)!! Amazing use of the stage in this small theatre that really pulls the audience in.

I really enjoyed how different this show was and how well they put the story across. The actors, especially Stanley Javis playing Christopher, gave incredible performances and I really enjoyed the music style! The set was perfect and the lighting really created the mood. My one comment would be that from my seat the sound felt like it was behind me if that makes sense. Other than that a splendid production again from the other palace!

Whisper House was excellent, great voices & pleasant music although not the sort you can sing along to! The cast did a good job with an interesting story and were all on stage most of the time. The band were a constant presence at the back of the stage; the set was simple but imaginative and well lit with good sound effects and projection onto the rear wall.

This is the first time for Whisper House in the West End - a pertinent story set in a lighthouse on the East coast of the US during WWII. It is told by two "ghosts" and 4 alive people with an eery set and wonderful projections of the sea and breaking waves sounds. Excellent acting and singing draw you into the story. Just wish the show had a catchy song to keep you thinking - as Spring Awakening (some composer) has. It was the first time I had learnt this little part of American WWII history - so worth seeing if you can.
