Designed by Herbert J. Krapp, the Ambassador Theatre opened on 11th February 1921 under the ownership of the Shuberts with a production of the musical "The Rose Girl." The Shuberts eventually sold the property in 1935 and it was turned into a cinema and television studio for NBC as well as the DuMont Television Network. During this time period, it was known as the Ambassador Tele-Theatre, until the Shuberts reclaimed ownership in 1956 and reinstated it as a Broadway Theatre. The Ambassador has been designated a New York City landmark for preservation.
