The Other Palace has just announced changes to its artistic team as Paul Taylor-Mills steps down as artistic director  and Chris Harper  joins the venue as director of programming
Paul Taylor-Mills relaunched the Victoria-based theatre with Andrew Lloyd Webber last year as a new musicals venue. He said in a statement: I've had the most wonderful couple of years working with Andrew... and establishing The Other Palace as one of the most important and dynamic venues in London for the new musical theatre scene.After spending the last couple of months being able to get my hands dirty on the producing of Heathers The Musical, I've reminded myself that this is where I get really excited and am keen to be able to focus my attentions on more of my independent projects.
Chris Harper – whose production company with Marianne Elliott, Elliott and Harper, is responsible for the recent production of Heisenberg and Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's upcoming musical comedy Company  starring Rosalie Craig and Patti Lupone – will join The Other Palace as director of programming, with Taylor-Mills taking on the new role of affiliate producer, with his first production being Heathers starring Carrie Hope Fletcher, opening later this month and Murder For Two" at Christmas. Harper will focus on building on the success of shows like "Big Fish" and "Eugenius".

Bob Eady remains as Chief Operating Officer.

The Other Palace will coninue to produce musicals and play host to shows from other producers with the Studio for developing new musicals. The Studio has hosted workshops of 26 new musicals, and cabaret nights as well as The Other Songs which has become a hub for songwriters to meet, play and showcase new writing to artists and record producers, as well as being a forum for composers to meet lyricists.
