Ambassadors TheatreFrom the outside, it appears impossible that an entire West End theatre could be fitted into this two-storey Soho corner. The Ambassadors is among the most notable achievements of the great theatrical architect W.G.R. Sprague; not only is there a medium-sized auditorium, cheerfully over-decorated, but the whole Louis XVI interior feels spacious and airy. When Agatha Christie adapted her own short Three Blind Mice for the stage, she could not have anticipated the impact that this clever little whodunnit would have. As The Mousetrap, it opened at the theatre, then called the New Ambassadors, in 1952. It played here for more than two decades before transferring to St Martin's Theatre, where it continues to break all records for the longest-running play of all time. Aside from this single monumental hit, the Ambassadors has focused, with considerable success, on high quality drama.
