West End producer extraordinaire Sonia Friedman – responsible for everything from ‘The Book of Mormon’ to Tom Stoppard’s new play — is currently booking in a series of exciting shows at the Ambassadors Theatre, notably Richard Gadd’s devastatingly intense stalker confessional ‘Baby Reindeer’, and ‘The Shark Is Broken’, a highly entertaining behind-the-scenes look at original movie blockbuster ‘Jaws’.

Both shows are pretty short – so to run in tandem with this, Sonia Friedman Productions is launching a late-night strand of comedy, cabaret and drag shows that will play in the evenings after the main shows, starting at 9.30pm several nights a month. 

The ‘main’ show will be ‘Live at the Ambassadors’, a comedy showcase that will kick off on April 23 with Gadd getting back to his massively acclaimed stand-up roots, on a bill headlined by the mighty Bridget Christie. ‘Live at the Ambassadors’ will run once a month; alongside it there’ll be more comedy (notably Kieran Hodges performing his hit shows ‘Maestro’ and ‘’75’), plus cabaret from The Cocoa Butter Club and Frisky & Mannish, and much-loved drag queen Crystal Rasmussen making her West End debut with an array of guests.

Thrillingly, we have 15 percent off all tickets – see link below to book.

April 23 Live at the Ambassadors with Bridget Christie, Richard Gadd, Lou Sanders and Darren Harriott
