Ambassador Theatre Tickets

The Ambassador Theatre, commonly referred to as simply “the Ambassador”, is a historic Broadway venue in the Manhattan Theatre District of New York City. The establishment is widely regarded as one of the most significant of its kind and dates back to the early 1920s. It is also known for its rather unusual but nevertheless ingenuous design and is now considered a landmark. The theatre has been the site of some of the most important Broadway shows of the 20th century and continues to be an ideal destination for many such productions. The building itself is a marvel to behold and, along with its annual line-up of events, attracts large audiences every year. As a result, the Ambassador Theatre tickets are always in high demand among theatre enthusiasts.

Construction on the premises for the Ambassador Theatre was started towards the end of the 1910s and the venue was finally opened in February 1921. The building was commissioned by the Shubert Organization, a theatrical production company that also owns many venues like the Ambassador. The latter was only one of a total of six that the organization would build during the period but it was also the most notable one. The Ambassador’s building was designed by prominent architect Herbert J. Krapp, who was renowned for his skill for unique designs that employed an innovative and efficient use of space.

For the Ambassador, Krapp took an unconventional approach and made a diagonal plan for the building. This allowed him to fit a large number of seats – more than one thousand and one hundred - in a relatively small area. The genius of this design is in the fact that, in addition to its efficient design, most people are unable to guess its layout when looking at the building’s exterior.

Since its opening, the Ambassador has hosted many productions of some of the best Broadway plays ever. These include The Rose Girl, The Diary of Anne Frank, Dreamgirls, Blossom Time and the Tony, Oliver and Grammy Award-winning musical Chicago, which the venue has hosted since 2003. The Ambassador’s impressive line-up of shows helped it become a favorite venue among Broadway audiences, critics, performers and promoters alike.

However, the venue use has not exclusively been used for theatre. During the 1930s, the Shubert Organization sold the Ambassador. For twenty years after that, the building varied between being used as a movie theatre and as a studio for television broadcasts by the DuMont Television Network and even by NBC. During the 1950s, the Shubert Organization repurchased the Ambassador and returned it to its intended purpose.

The Ambassador Theatre has now been selected as an official landmark of New York City. The venue continues to be the city’s proud tradition of live Broadway entertainment and still attracts large audiences who flock to the Ambassador for nothing less than a memorable experience. Future performances at the venue are sure to be no exception and Ambassador Theatre tickets are now up for grabs.
