Planning permission has been granted for a new 600-seat theatre in London’s King Cross.

Although it has not been officially confirmed, The Stage understands that Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr’s London Theatre Company, which runs the Bridge Theatre at London Bridge, will be the venue’s operator.

The theatre is part of a development known as P2, which will also contain nine floors of flexible office space as well as retail space on the ground floor.

Camden Council’s planning committee approved the plans for the theatre at a meeting on August 16.

The application was made by developer King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership, with the designs for the theatre by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris.

The practice also designed Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre and the Barbican’s art gallery.
