The Ambassadors Theatre, one of the smallest West End Theatres, was designed by W G R Sprague, with the intention of being an intimate, smaller theatre. It seats a maximum of 195 people in the Dress Circle, and 251 in the Stalls. Sprague has designed other famous West End theatres as well, including St. Martin's Theatre next door and the Aldwych Theatre in Covent Garden.
The longest running production in Britain, The Mousetrap, by Agatha Christie opened at the Ambassadors Theatre on 25th November 1952, and remained at the theatre for 21 years, until it moved to the larger St. Martin's Theatre next door. Following this production the theatre saw a variety of shows including, Les Liasions Dangereuses, Love Song, and the revival of Little Shop of Horrors.
