What's On Highlights

Switzerland
FROM:10-11-2018
TO:05-01-2019
+ More Info +

Filled with razor-sharp dialogue, this chilling and sometimes hilarious two-hander unfolds into a gripping psychological thriller.

1995, the Swiss Alps. Patricia Highsmith, the queen of the thriller, now ageing and ailing, hides away in her study, finding solace in her seclusion, her cats and cigarettes. Vitriolic, bigoted and alcoholic, her eccentricities are the stuff of legend. A polished young man arrives, sent by her publisher to persuade the great writer to pen one final installment of her best-selling series featuring the master manipulator, Tom Ripley. But as day breaks over the mountains, it becomes clear that the charming stranger is set on a far more sinister mission.

Phyllis Logan, who played housekeeper Mrs Hughes in Downton Abbey, was acclaimed for her extraordinary performance as Patricia Highsmith at Switzerland’s sold-out premiere at the Theatre Royal Bath's Ustinov Studio earlier this year.

'Phyllis Logan ... completely wonderful. A real stab of class. Lucy Bailey's razor-sharp direction' **** Mail on Sunday
'Very well acted. Calum Finlay impeccable. A teasing metaphysical thriller' **** Guardian
**** Sunday Times **** WhatsOnStage

Running time: 1 hour 35 minutes, no interval

Songs For Nobodies
FROM:09-01-2019
TO:23-02-2019
+ More Info +

You are invited to a 'truly virtuosic performance... a masterclass' (***** London Theatre 1) with Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas.

On stage for 90 minutes accompanied by live musicians and 'performed with astounding versatility' (**** The Reviews Hub), Bernadette Robinson's miraculous voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the thrilling soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf. With consummate ease, she breathes new life into the five legendary performers and the five ordinary women whose lives were changed by their brush with fame.

This 'tour de force' (***** Broadway World), performed by the uniquely talented Australian singer and actor in her critically-acclaimed one-woman performance of a lifetime, is 'a fabulous story' (**** The Times). Returning due to phenomenal demand, book now for a 'spellbinding solo performance' (**** WhatsOnStage).

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval

The Twilight Zone
FROM:04-03-2019
TO:01-06-2019
+ More Info +

You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone...

Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns) and directed by Olivier Award-winner Richard Jones, this "piercingly smart" (Time Out) production of the acclaimed CBS Television series lands at the Ambassador’s Theatre, fresh from a rapturously received, sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre.

Hailed as “a treat from far beyond” (Evening Standard), this "whirling paranormal kaleidoscope" (The Guardian) leads you on a chilling journey into the unknown, through eight stories set where the extraordinary is ordinary, the impossible probable, and where you’re never entirely sure what’s real and what’s your imagination. But don’t worry. Your imagination can’t hurt you ... can it?

Unlock the door to "unsettling, dazzling and sophisticated entertainment" (WhatsOnStage) with this electrifying, unpredictable evening.

Running time: 2 hours and 10 minutes, including a 20 minute interval
Age recommendation: 12+

The Ambassadors Theatre was designed by W G R Sprague who designed many West End Theatres including the St Martin's situated next door and the Aldwych Theatre in Covent Garden. It was built by Kingerlee and Sons of Oxford.
The theatre opened on 5th June 1913 with a production of Panthea, a play by Monckton Hoffe which ran for only 15 nights.
The great impresario Charles B. Cochran took a lease on the theatre in 1914 and introduced what was then a new genre of entertainment from Paris, the 'intimate' review. Odds and Ends starring the French actress and singer Alice Delysia ran for over 400 performances. More Odds and Ends followed in 1915.
