Central London's newest theatre is a great place to catch an out of town transfer
St James Theatre is the first newly-built theatre complex in central London in 30 years, built on the site of the former Westminster Palace. Though from the outside it looks a bit like a mid-priced hotel, the 312-seat main house has been an interesting addition to the London theatre scene. Though it's produced plenty of original productions, it's perhaps most valuably served as a place for acclaimed regional productions to swiftly transfer into.
It also has a 150-capacity studio that's carved out a decent niche for itself hosting musical cabaret and suchlike.

After a short, chequered lifespan during which it had the odd hit but never quite found its feet, the St James Theatre goes out on something reasonably close to a high for its final production before it rebrands as the Andrew Lloyd Webber-led The Other...Musicals Until Saturday January 28 2017

TIMEOUT... Shame on you! This show deserves a bigger stage. It kept me entertained from the beginning through to the end. Yes it was eccentric but this is what Made it interesting for me. The imagery was incredible, the cast and acting were spot on with top class performances and the music was fantastic. What more do you need.
