AMBASSADOR THEATRE GROUP
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 are passionate about great shows and our ambition is to help them find the largest possible audiences.
We operate some of the world’s most iconic venues.
We operate over 50 venues across Britain, the US and Germany. 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 have recently secured the contract to programme, present and operate two music-focused arenas. The historic Globe in Stockton, and the brand-new Digital Arena on the waterside in Swansea. In the US, we run two theatres on Broadway and manage venues in Brooklyn, New Orleans, San Antonio, Boston and Houston. ATG operates the two venues presenting Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in the US: the Lyric Theatre on Broadway and the Curran Theatre in San Francisco. In Europe, we operate theatres in Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf and Bochum. In addition, we’re delighted that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has chosen one of our venues, the Mehr! Theater in Hamburg, for its first ever non-English production, which we will produce and open in spring 2020.
