The Dominion Theatre London
The Dominion Theatre is situated next to Tottenham Court Road underground station. Although its location is reasonably central to London, the theatre is a fair distance away from the centre of Theatreland.
The building was constructed in 1928 and then converted to a cinema in the 1930′s.
According to ‘The Theatres of London book’, by Richard Mander and Joe Mitchenson, this was at one time the site for the St Giles’ Leper Hospital, founded in 1101 by Matilda Queen of Henry I. In 1764 a brewery was on the site, and in 1809 Henry Meux took over the brewery, and it became Meux’s Brewery.
Constructed on two sites, the auditorium and stage were on a site previously occupied by Meux’s brewery. It was designed by the architects William and T R Milburn.
On 3rd October 1929 the theatre opened with an American musical comedy Follow Through, based on golf by De Sylvia Brown and Henderson. However, neither this production or a follow-up musical Silver Wings were very successful. Subsequently there followed Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights, without any dialogue but with music and sound effects. It opened in February 1931 with Chaplin making an appearance. Further live shows followed but in April 1932 a receiver was appointed with a compulsory winding-up order being served on 30th May 1932.
In the mid-1980s, the Dominion was home to the musical Time, which required gutting and reconstructing the theatre to accommodate the show’s ground-breaking effects.
Since the early 1990s, the venue has played host to a number of shows including Jesus Christ Superstar, David Ian and Paul Nicholas’ production of Grease, Scrooge: The Musical, Swan Lake, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, a second run of Grease, and Notre Dame de Paris.
In 2002, the musical We Will Rock You, based on the songs of Queen, created by Queen guitarist Brian May and British comedian Ben Elton opened. During October 2006 the show was to close before starting a UK tour, but due to popular demand, the show went on, before finally closing on 31st May 2014.
