ABOUT HUDSON BROADWAY
Situated just off Times Square in New York on 44th Street, between Millennium Broadway Hotel and The Premier Hotel, the Hudson Theatre originally opened on October 19, 1903 with a production of Cousin Kate starring Ethel Barrymore. Built by Henry B. Harris, a famous Broadway producer of that period, the Hudson Theatre is one of New York City’s oldest Broadway showplaces. The 100-foot long lobby was the largest ever seen on Broadway at that time. Among the stars that have graced the Hudson’s stage are Douglas Fairbanks, William Holden, Helen Hayes, Edward G. Robinson and Dorothy Gish. Barbara Stanwyck and Judith Anderson both made their debuts on its stage. On September 27, 1956 the first nationwide broadcast of “The Tonight Show” starring Steve Allen originated from the Hudson Theatre. It was granted landmark status for both its internal and external features in 1987.
Founded in 1992, Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) is the world’s number one live theater company with the vision of helping great shows to find the largest audiences. ATG operates over 50 venues in Britain, North America and Germany. It is an internationally recognized award-winning theater producer with productions in the West End and on Broadway and touring productions in the U.K., North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. ATG is also the market leader in theater ticketing services through ATG Tickets, LOVETheatre and Group Line.
ATG operates the newly refurbished Lyric Theatre, home to the acclaimed Tony Award winner Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the oldest theater on Broadway, the beautifully restored Hudson Theatre. ATG manages and operates the Saenger and Mahalia Jackson theaters in New Orleans, the Majestic and Empire theaters in San Antonio and the magnificent Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. Under ATG’s management, Emerson Colonial Theatre in Boston reopened in the summer of 2018 with the critically-acclaimed pre-Broadway World Premiere engagement of Moulin Rouge! The Musical. In 2018, ATG secured a lease on San Francisco’s Curran Theatre, where the West Coast Premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will commence performances in the fall. Most recently, ATG acquired Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land. Declared “Houston’s Hottest Music Venue” by Houston Press, Smart Financial Centre is a state-of-the-art, indoor performance venue with flexible seating capacities.
ATG’s most recent producing credits in the U.S. include Dear Evan Hansen, Pretty Woman: The Musical, A Doll’s House Part 2, Sunday in the Park with George, and Lincoln Center Theater’s The King and I.
