Ambassadors Theatre London, a Statement from STOMP’s Producers

There has been a lot of coverage of Cameron Mackintosh’s proposed take over of the Ambassadors theatre for redevelopment. Most of the coverage reports his purchase of the theatre as a done deal. It is actually subject to planning permission, so it is very much business as usual at the Ambassadors; Cameron Mackintosh does not yet own the theatre. STOMP is booking through 2015, and should the take over go ahead, will find a new home in London. The producers of Stomp have issued the following statement:

 

STOMP applauds Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s vision of a non-proscenium, studio style transfer theatre in the heart of the West End. Stomp is itself a show that transferred from the fringe and it subsidises and supports The Old Market theatre, a non-proscenium venue in Brighton. The Ambassadors has been a wonderful space for us, and our West End business is at an all time high. Obviously we were disappointed yesterday to discover we may have to look for a new home for Stomp in London in the near future. Since being at the Ambassadors, sales have grown year on year without exception and after our appearance at the Olympics closing ceremony Stomp has had its best ever years in London.

 

Even as the news was about to be released we were enjoying a sold out Thursday matinee at a time of the year that is traditionally tough for West End shows. We are still enjoying record levels of demand, with some of the highest occupancy rates in the West End.

 

STOMP successfully transferred from the Vaudeville to the Ambassadors in 2007, and became an even bigger hit in the process. We are committed to our run at the Ambassadors, to our audiences and to the schools that have made us such a popular choice for theatre trips and workshops. With that in mind, we will be looking at options for a new home in London to further our phenomenally successful 12-year run and wish the potential new owners of the Ambassadors the best of luck in their venture.

 

STOMP will shortly be extending its booking period at the Ambassadors through to December 2015.
