I visited the Ambassador for the first time yesterday afternoon to see "Switzerland" which is a smart, funny thriller staring Phyllis Logan of Downton Abbey fame. It was amazing how enthralling the piece was with just two actors and one set but that's what great...More

Visited the theatre last Monday to see Pressure. Amazing play. Great staff. Theatre seats VERY uncomfortable making concentration hard due to cramped seats causing painful knees. Would return but hopefully seated in another part of the theatre the next time.
