Opened in September 2012, St. James Theatre is a unique, award winning arts complex in central London. With a 312 seat main house presenting plays, musicals and revues, and a 120 capacity Studio in cabaret style offering over 250 shows a year, the St. James has established itself as the vibrant cultural hub of the rapidly developing Victoria area and a major player on the wider cultural scene.
A theatre of choice for the best regional transfers, the perfect space for mid-scale musicals and musical revues, or the first stop for ambitious productions with designs on the West End, we stage shows that excite us, that marry great writing with visionary artists and that will appeal to theatregoers of all ages.
A commercial enterprise without subsidy, we produce, co-produce and receive shows alike. In our first 18 months we have had two West End transfers (Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tell Me on a Sunday; Urinetown: The Musical), two Olivier Award nominations (Cinderella, Tell Me on a Sunday), six What’s On Stage Award nominations and an Offie award nomination. Productions have been helmed by such renowned directors as, Sir Trevor Nunn, Max Stafford Clark, Sir Jonathan Miller, John Caird, Jamie Lloyd, David Grindley, Tamara Harvey and Blanche MacIntyre.
