Ambassadors Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Ambassadors Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Ambassadors Theatre is situated on West Street in the West End of London, opposite the famous Ivy restaurant and close to Leicester Square tube station. Built in 1913, this 400 seat venue is one of the smallest in the West End.
The first production at the Ambassadors Theatre was Panthea by Monckton Hoffe, which opened on June 5 1913. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are The Mask of Virtue starring Vivien Leigh and directed by Laurence Olivier, The Mousetrap, Krapp’s Last Tape, Little Shop of Horrors and The Vagina Monologues.
Today, the Ambassadors Theatre enjoys consistent success and is known for its eclectic programming of both musicals and straight plays. It has nurtured a number of future star names over the years, acquiring a reputation for fostering new talent.
When it was in the planning stages, the Ambassadors theatre was intended to be one of two theatres built side by side, but the outbreak of WWI delayed the construction of the second theatre, the St Martins.
The buildings that stood on the site of the delayed St Martins Theatre were still in existence at the time the Ambassadors was being built. The compact design of the Ambassadors results from a desire to not obstruct the unique lighting of these ancient buildings, as does the below street-level placement of the stalls.
The theatre's most famous production is Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap, which enjoyed a 22 year run at the Ambassadors before moving in 1974 to St Martin's Theatre where it is still running.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Ambassadors Theatre make it the perfect place to experience world-class theatre in an intimate setting. Recent successes include Sweeney Todd, Hamlet, Journey’s End, Love Song, Waiting for Godot, Whipping it Up and Stomp.
Whatever you decide to see at the Ambassadors Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
