Dominion Theatre

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.

Enormous theatre right in the heart of central London. The Dominion couldn't get any closer to the tube station (Tottenham Court Road) if it tried.

The seats are large and comfortable and the toilets are easily accessible. What more could you want from a theatre.

Very easy to get to, being right next to Tottenham Court Road Station (Northern and Central lines) the theatre has a warm, welcoming atmosphere when you walk through the entrance.  Small bars are fitted snugly within tight spaces around the building, the one large lounge/bar down  from the foyer is strangely without seating. Toilets are crammed into tight spaces and there are too few of them, with the inevitable long queus forming.  The main theatre is very large (2,000 seats), very comfortable and seats are well raked so that even towards the back of the stalls you still have an excellent view of the stage. There has been good consideration of mobility-impaired customers too (phone ahead), which given the building was constructed in 1929 is very impressive.

Lovely theatre! The seats are comfy with lots of leg room. The person in front of me was in my view all night so my neck hurt by the end. Easy in and easy out...and that's what's important!

This theatre is very large! I couldn't begin to count the seats ... Rows go back all the way to DOUBLE X!!! The seats are comfortable and you have a good view from anywhere I reckon as the stage is large and demanding.

They have binoculars you can rent for a puns just in case your eyesight isn't as good as it used to be ;)

A beautiful theatre overall! And you feel its grandeur from the foyer ..

This theatre is everything you could want from a theatre experience. Grand decor, a beautiful stage, a selection of bars which means it isn't to long a wait to get served and a reasonable number of toilets! Oh, and the view from the back of the stalls is pretty spot on too!

We came to watch 'An American in Paris' which was a really beautiful show and this setting made it even more special.

This is such a big theatre but the seats are comfy and the view all the way back in row ZZ of the stalls is still alright! Not sure about up in the gods. Great location in on the corner of Tottenham Court Road but further away from the rest of the  West End.

At the moment Elf is showing and the stage production is awesome. Story has the feel good factor and is perfect for Xmas!
