Discover New Musical Theatre
Here at The Other Palace we want to create a community of people who share our passion for all things musicals. We are the London space where emerging artists can try out and refine new work, offering audiences the opportunity to see musicals in development, offer feedback and help shape the musical theatre landscape. If this is something that you would like to be part of, have a look at some of the new musicals that we have coming up…

Written and composed by David Gordon, brother of renowned UK musician, Yusuf (formerly Cat Stevens), Alpha Omega is a moving, theatrical song cycle of humankind’s never-ending pursuit of the meaning of existence, meanwhile practising perpetual destruction, caused by the failure of the so-called ‘great faiths’ to find common ground on which to unite all peoples of the world.

Reputation: A New Musical

Reputation, a major new retro musical by Alick Glass, is a compelling story of plagiarism and the female struggle for equality.
