The Dominion Theatre in Fitzrovia was built in 1928 and designed as one of London’s biggest theatre venues by W and TR Milburn. It was interestingly converted to a cinema as well as a live theatre venue in the 1930s as live-show business took a slightly rocky turn, but now stages some of the West End’s most sought-after productions. Thanks to its cinematic roots, the Dominion Theatre’s seating plan has all sight-lines considered, so you should get a good view no matter which spot you pick from the theatre’s 2069 seats. It’s retained its 1930s Art Deco style with glamorous golds and reds to make your night out to the theatre really feel special.
Based right at the New Oxford Street junction on Tottenham Court Road, the Dominion Theatre is easily accessible via the Northern and Central tube lines. Tottenham Court Road tube station is just a few steps away, and Leicester Square tube station is also close-by via the Piccadilly line. With such a central location in London, there’s no shortage of places to eat and drink near the Dominion Theatre. Family favourites like Garfunkel’s, Zizzi, Shake Shack and Five Guys are all located at a short distance from the venue, or for some more special restaurants near the Dominion Theatre you can head to the nearby Covent Garden and Seven Dials. Older kids will love the trendy Seven Dials Market, one of London’s hot new food courts with communal seating, global cuisines and even live music at the weekends for a bit of pre-theatre pizzazz. If you’re not a London-dweller and need somewhere to stay after your night out on the town, then there are plenty of hotels near the Dominion Theatre. The Hub by Premier Inn is nearby on Goodge Street, St Giles London is just 100 yards away from the venue or you can treat yourselves to a night in the Radisson Blu or the elegant Bloomsbury Hotel if it’s a special occasion.
The Dominion Theatre has hosted a wide range of films and live shows since the 1930s including a long run of the musical film The Sound of Music, a three year run of London’s live staging of Grease, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, We Will Rock You and several Royal Variety Performances. The theatre is now performing the widely acclaimed The Prince of Egypt, which is set to return to stage in November 2020.
