Ambassador Theatre Group Limited

The Ambassador Theatre Group Limited (ATG) is renowned for its highly successful management of theatre venues throughout the country. ATG’s current total holdings amounts to 16 buildings, having recently added seven high profile London theatres to its portfolio and consolidating its position as a major industry player.

The seven West End theatres, previously managed by Associated Capital Theatres, include the Donmar, Albery, Phoenix, Piccadilly, Wyndhams, Comedy and Whitehall and are renowned for playing host to a variety of first class productions including The Blue Room, directed by Golden Globe Award winning Director, Sam Mendes and starring Nicole Kidman.

ATG currently owns and operates the Duke of York’s and New Ambassadors Theatres in the West End, the New Victoria Theatre and a 6-screen multiplex cinema complex in Woking. It has also acquired the Theatre Royal, Brighton; the Victoria Concert Hall; the Regent Theatre in Stoke-on-Trent; the new theatre in Milton Keynes; as well as having just been awarded a ten-year management contract for the Churchill Theatre in Bromley, it is also currently completing contracts with the management of Richmond Theatre.

In addition, ATG has a considerable track record in producing musicals and drama for the West End and on international and national tours. Over recent years it has produced or co-produced many successful productions including, The Weir (winner of the 1999 Olivier Award for Best New Play) in the West End and on Broadway, The Royal Court Classics Season, both in the West End and on tour throughout the UK, a national tour of A Chorus Line, the multi award-winning London premiere of Hammerstein’s musical, Carmen Jones, Slava’s Snowshow, Simon Gray’s The Common Pursuit and his more recent play The Late Middle Classes. ATG has also built a considerable co- production record with many theatres around the UK especially The Royal Court.

ATG’s New Ambassadors Theatre in the West End showcases some of the country’s most exciting artists, including ATG’s co-productions of: Last Dance at Dum Dum by Ayub Khan-Din (writer of the hugely successful East is East), Drummers, Some Explicit Polaroids and Spoonface Steinberg. Krapp’s Last Tape starring John Hurt and Shared Experience’s Jane Eyre have also recently appeared at the New Ambassadors to great critical and audience acclaim.

From 25th April to 20th May 2000, the New Ambassadors will be home to Lee Hall’s new translation of Mother Courage and Her Children by Bertolt Brecht, starring Kathryn Hunter and presented by Shared Experience Theatre.
