Commercial as they come, the Dominion Theatre relies on populist, accessible shows to fill its whopping 2,000-seat capacity. And grumpy critics aside, it’s done a pretty good job of pleasing the masses, with crowd-pullers such as ‘Grease’, Matthew Bourne’s ‘Swan Lake’ and, most recently, Queen and Ben Elton’s tribute musical, ‘We Will Rock You’. Considering its fare, the Dominion couldn’t be more aptly placed: at the crossroads where Tottenham Court Road meets Oxford Street. It practically vacuums the tourists off the street with its glitzy front and towering statue of Freddie Mercury.
