Ambassador Theatre Tours

Ambassador Theatre
Opened in 1921, the Ambassador Theatre is situated in the heart of New York City's Theater District. The theater is known for its hexagonal auditorium and many hits, from Godspell to long-running Chicago. Theater enthusiasts typically buy tickets to shows at the Ambassador in advance to secure seats at this in-demand Broadway venue.

The Basics
The best way to visit the Ambassador is to stop by for one of its productions, including Tony Award-winning musicals, which are staged six days a week. To find the best seats, it's advised to buy tickets in advance. Another way to see the Ambassador from the outside is on a Theater District walking tour, which allows you to see New York City attractions while learning about the legends of Broadway.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Architecture and design fans enjoy the theater's Adam-style interior plasterwork.
  • The theater offers patrons assistive listening and audio description devices.
  • Check the calendar in advance—both matinee and evening performances are offered.
  • Wheelchair seating is only available in the Orchestra section of the theater.
  • Keep your camera in your pocket, since filming and taking photos is prohibited.

How to Get There
The Ambassador Theatre is located at 291 West 49th Street, off of Broadway. To reach the theater by subway, take the 1 train to 50th Street Broadway, or the N, Q, R, or W train to 49th Street. Walking tours of the neighborhood are a convenient way to visit the area and get your bearings.

When to Get There
The Ambassador offers several performances weekly, and the theater is typically dark on Wednesdays. On Saturday and Sunday, performances are offered in both the afternoon and evening—providing more options to fit a show into your busy schedule. Expect bigger crowds between mid-November and the new year, and lower demand in January and February.

Exploring Midtown Manhattan

The Ambassador Theatre is located in the iconic Theater District, a short walk from several of Midtown Manhattan's must-see sights. For a family-friendly activity, stop by the Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum in Times Square, or for a more traditional sightseeing experience visit Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, or the light-flooded center of Times Square, at 46th Street and Seventh Avenue.

Nice Broadway show

The show was great, lighthearted with a dash of humour and a none too serious storyline. A relatively small theatre brought you closer to the event. My only criticism is when I picked my 2 tickets up from the Booking Office I noticed the seats weren't allocated next to each other! Luckily the seating staff took note and made sure we were moved to a better position on adjacent seats.

High priced show with some better, some not so good actors in a not at all glamourous atmosphere. I definitelydon´t need to do this again.
