Venue Description

Famous as the home of We Will Rock You between 2002 and 2014, the Dominion theatre is a Grade II listed building with a varied and colourful history as a cinema, variety hall and music venue before returning to its original function as a theatre in the 1980s. Famous productions at the Dominion include Time which featured a holograph of Laurence Olivier, Grand Hotel, Barnum, Beauty and the Beast and Notre Dame de Paris. In 2014 the Dominion underwent a multi-million pound renovation reopening on 16th September with a 7 week run of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece Evita. In the two years that followed White Christmas (2014) and Michael Flatley’s Lord of The Dance (2015) graced the stage before Elf (2015) starring Ben Forster and Kimberley Walsh broke all previous Box Office records. In 2016 Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds arrived at the Dominion for a 10 week run, followed by Beverley Knight reprising her role as Rachel Marron in a 6 month run of The Bodyguard: The Musical. The Tony Award-winning An American in Paris opened in March 2017.

Accessibility

The entrance to the theatre is street level with step-free access and double width doors. It is fully accessible for wheelchairs. The Box Office counter is situated inside the foyer to the left and is located under the staircase. There are 9 steps down to the foyer with handrails in place. Due to the number of stairs leading to the Circle and inside the auditorium, we do not recommend Circle seating for patrons with restricted mobility. Whilst the main foyer is fully accessible and on street level, there is no seating. Patrons will be unable to be seated prior to the circle and stalls opening. Please see the performance information for door opening times. Please contact the door staff on arrival to be introduced to you access host. The Nederlander Box is accessible from street level with accommodation for up to 3 wheelchairs and 3 companions and a dedicated accessible toilet. Stalls ZZ50, YY50 & XX50 can be removed to accommodate one wheelchair and are accessible from theatre foyer using the wheelchair lift. There is also an accessible toilet in the stalls. (Your access host will have a RADAR Key, but if you have one, please bring it with you). Unfortunately, these seats are only accessible for manual wheelchairs as the wheelchair lift is unsuitable for electric wheelchairs. Due to the limited availability of these spaces, we highly recommend booking well in advance. When patrons are transferring from a wheelchair to a theatre seat we will store the wheelchair safely for the duration of the show and bring it to you during the interval if required. An in-house wheelchair is also available. Stalls row A has the most leg room, and while there are no seats without another directly in front, the following seats offer very good leg room: Stalls N 12 & N 39, O 12 & O 39, Z 1 & Z 50. We have an infra-red hearing system with two choices of receiver, a headset or a neck loop. If you would like to make use of the hearing system we advise booking tickets directly with our box office on 020 7927 0929 or emailing access@dominiontheatre.com to ensure your seats are allocated in a suitable area. To use this facility, please ask a member of our Front of house team for assistance on arrival.
