The Jermyn Street Theatre is a small theatre based on Jermyn Street.
During the 1930s, the basement of 16b Jermyn Street – close to Piccadilly in the heart of London’s West End – was home to the glamorous Monseigneur Restaurant and Club. The space was converted into a theatre by Howard Jameson and Penny Horner in the early 1990s and Jermyn Street Theatre staged its first production in August 1994. The theatre director Neil Marcus became the first Artistic Director in 1995 and secured Lottery funding for the venue; the producer Chris Grady also made a major contribution to the theatre’s development. In the late 1990s, the Artistic Director was David Babani, later the founder and Artistic Director of the Menier Chocolate Factory. In 1995, HRH Princess Michael of Kent became the theatre’s Patron.
Over the last twenty years the theatre has established itself as one of London’s leading Off-West End studio theatres
