The Dominion Theatre is located in the heart of London’s West End and also hosts conferences and events. The Dominion Theatre is located immediately adjacent to Tottenham Court Road tube station (Northern and Central Lines) at the junction with New Oxford Street. The British Museum is but a short 5 minute walk away. Its capacity of 2,069 makes it one of the largest theatres in the West End.
The Dominion Theatre opened in 1929. The first two productions, the musicals Follow Through and Silver Wings, were huge failures and even a variety season with the legendary Maurice Chevalier was a flop. In 1930, only a year after it opened, the Dominion Theatre was converted into a cinema.
Over the years a number of re-build projects have seen the venue undergo major changes; parts of the theatre were converted into offices and in 1958, a huge new screen and projector were installed. This resulted in the Upper Circle being closed, cutting the Dominion’s seating capacity from 2835 to 2007.
Fifty years on, the Upper Circle has still not been reopened; the last time it was used was for a five-night run of concerts by Judy Garland in 1957. Live concert performances also took place in this era.
In 1981 the venue underwent a major refurbishment and was reopened as a theatre. Since then, and before We Will Rock You’s twelve year residency, the Dominion has hosted Dave Clark’s futuristic but ill-fated musical, Time, starring Cliff Richard and a Laurence Olivier hologram, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 1997 and Grease with Craig McLaughlin and Debbie Gibson in 2001.
Having rocked over 6.5 million people in a record-breaking 12 years at the London’s Dominion Theatre, the smash hit Queen & Ben Elton’s musical We Will Rock You finally closed on 31 May 2014. Over Christmas 2015, the theatre was home to Elf the Musical and will welcome The Bodyguard in Summer 2016.
