Ambassador Theatre Group


Nothing beats the energy and excitement of a great live experience. That’s why our mission is to bring the very best in live entertainment to the largest possible number of people. Founded in 1992 in the UK, we’ve grown into the world’s number one live-theatre company today. We cover every discipline in the theatre industry, from operating venues to ticketing platforms and producing shows.

We own or operate some of the world’s most iconic venues

We operate 58 venues across Britain, the US and Germany. Our impact on these venues takes significant investment, in some cities we’ve restored closed and forgotten theatres like The Colonial Theatre in Boston, the Hudson Theatre in New York and Stockton’s Globe theatre, back to their former architectural and trading glory.

Our portfolio includes historic West End theatres such as the Duke of York’s, Harold Pinter, Piccadilly, Savoy, the Apollo Victoria and the Lyceum, home to Wicked and The Lion King respectively. We also operate venues across the UK in major cities such as Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and many more. We programme, present and operate two music-focussed arenas: the historic Globe in Stockton, and the brand-new Digital Arena on the waterside in Swansea.

In the US, we run two Broadway houses: the Lyric Theatre, now the Broadway home of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the Hudson Theatre, reopened in 2017 as a playhouse. Over the years, we have grown our footprints to manage venues in Brooklyn, Boston, Detroit, San Francisco, New Orleans, San Antonio, and Sugar Land, Texas. In Europe, we operate theatres in Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf and Bochum. In addition, we’re delighted that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child chose one of our venues, the Mehr! Theater in Hamburg, for its first ever non English production.
