See London's West End TheatresSee Theatreland MapsThe Jermyn Street Theatre opened in August 1994 and was built in the basement changing rooms of the former 1920s Le Monsignor Restaurant, later to become The Spaghetti House Restaurant, and now the Getti Restaurant, at a cost of £280,000 which was donated by 56 British companies including a major donation from Laings Builders.

In 1997 the Theatre was further developed with the help of a National Lottery Grant from the Arts Council.

This small but successful Studio Theatre seats up to 80 people and it's stated aim is to 'provide talented new actors, directors and writers with the opportunity to be recognised and given a platform in smart, comfortable surroundings, and with other members of the profession.'

With its mix of plays, music, comedy, cabaret, and magic the Jermyn Street Theatre could be said to be carrying on the spirit of Music Hall and Variety in the modern era, albeit on separate nights. The Theatre is licensed and includes a small Bar Area.
