La Strada

Until July 8, 2017

As part of The Other Palace's (currently St James Theatre) inaugural season in 2017, Federico Fellini's Oscar-winning 1957 film is transformed into a stunning new musical adaptation by the producer of recent West End hits Top Hat, The Play That Goes Wrong and Hetty Feather. Helmed by Olivier nominee Sally Cookson, the score is composed by Benji Bower in what is a long-awaited move to theatre. Set in the postwar Italian countryside, La Strada (translated: The Road) follows a simple-minded peasant girl and a brutal carnival strongman on a perilous journey to acceptance, exploring pride and survival along the way.

The Little Beasts

July 14-29, 2017

A brand-new musical for families is on the horizon at the recently opened The Other Palace (formerly known as St. James Theatre). Based on an 18th century cautionary tale. The Little Beasts (What Happens Tou Naughty Children) will premiere in the theatre's debut season, overseen by musical impresario Andrew Lloyd-Webber as part of his Pitch Perfect initiative. A morality tale that will resound with children, this refreshing new musical follows a SELFISH young girl who stumbles upon a magical menagerie filled with all manner of creatures. But what becomes apparent is that these animals are the transformed souls of naughty children. Written by Luke Bateman and Michael Conley.
