Ambassadors Theatre

The Ambassadors and St Martin's Theatres were designed by the architect W.G.R. Sprague with building works starting in 1913. World War I interrupted the construction of St Martin’s for three years and the Ambassadors was built with the intention of being an intimate, smaller theatre.  It has a humble facade with balustrade decorated with ball-shaped ornaments and is situated opposite the famous Ivy Restaurant which is a favourite haunt of the theatrical elite.

The Ambassadors Theatre has housed many productions with Agatha Christie's infamous play, the Mousetrap, opening there in November 1952. With one of the longest runs in West End history, it transferred to St Martin’s theatre after over 21 successful years there.

The auditorium is decorated in elegant Louis XVI style with walls full of ambassadorial crests and a horseshoe shaped single balcony just a few steps up from ground level, while the stalls are built underground. Its seating capacity of just over 450 creates an intimate atmosphere making it the perfect for small plays

When the Ambassadors Theatre Group took over in 1999 it was renamed the New Ambassadors.
