Ambassadors Theatre., London

The Ambassadors Theatre stands as one of the most intimate theatres in the West End, housing less than 500 people when accounting for both the stalls and the dress circle. Since it first emerged onto the scene in 1913 it has welcomed many well known names to its auditorium and also The Mousetrap before it moved to St Martin’s Theatre.

The venue is in fact a sister theatre to the aforementioned venue and along with sharing designers in W G R Sprague, they were also planned to open at around the same time. However, thanks to the onset of the First World War it would not be until 1916 that St Martin’s would open with its premiere production.

The first production to make its way to the stage of the Ambassadors Theatre was Panthea, later home to The Mask of Virtue, starring Vivien Leigh.

The Mousetrap still remains its most famous show, even if audiences still wishing to see it now have to travel to the nearby St Martin’s Theatre. The show originally appeared at the Ambassadors Theatre in 1952 and ran at the venue for more than twenty years ahead of its transfer

Stomp began its run in 2007, playing for over 10 years. Stephen McNicholas and Luke Cresswell’s acclaimed production utilises a range of household items to create a percussive effect. With an array of talented performers, plus imaginative set pieces, it was a popular production.
