Bill Kenwright Ltd today confirmed its purchase of The Other Palace Theatre for an undisclosed amount today.

Redeveloped in 2012, the venue was redeveloped in 2012 featuring a 308-seat performance space, a studio space, bar and restaurant. It was the first newly built theatre complex in central London in 30 years.

Bill Kenwright said, “Anyone who knows me…and that includes all of the current theatre owners…knows that owning a theatre in London has never been on my bucket list.

“Andrew has been a friend and collaborator for over 40 years and when I heard that he was thinking of selling The Other Palace, that mindset altered. The Other Palace is a theatrical hub for new and exciting work where Andrew and his team achieved so much. I had not only produced there but also seen other productions both on the main stage and in the studio and had always felt the big hug that the theatre itself seemed to deliver. After nearly two years of pandemic chaos, it felt exactly the right moment for a positive step and a commitment to the future.”

Bill Kenwright is currently producing tours of Blood Brothers, Heathers the musical, and The Cat and The Canary in the UK.

Heathers the musical will re-open The Other Palace. Heathers the musical tickers are now on sale.
