My husband and I took a trip to the dominion theatre to see Lord of the dance. It was the first time I had been to a London show and I have to say that I was underwhelmed. The theatre is very old fashioned and I would say the foyer is in desperate need of a decorator and carpet from... More

Terrible show, some contrived story that we couldn't understand, lots of filling between the group dances which were pretty good, a singer who wasn't great singing what sounded like Eurovision songs, a sprite pretending to play a tin whistle, female dancers gratuitously taking their clothes off and dancing in their bras.... All I can say is give it a miss!

This production was absolutely appalling. As a fan of Ronan Hardiman's original music and the original lord of the dance I was bitterly disappointed with this fake version of the show. It started off with an entirely gratuitous and self-congratulatory video extolling the marvellousness of all things Flatley which had no relevance to the show/story itself. Next our ears were...

Not having seen a live performance of Lord of the Dance before I cannot compare it to earlier ones. I thought it was excellent. The two girls playing the fiddles were also excellent (unlike the views of an earlier contributor). Very lively and the male lead was worth going for alone (not Michael Flatley this time). The theatre, however, was... More

Saw the show at the Palladium in October last year and thought it was very good but very loud. Thought it would be worth seeing again to see Michael Flately one last time. Unfortunately his father died and he pulled out of the show at the last minute. As some people have already mentioned in other reviews I think it... More

Theatre was less than half full to see LotD tonight. Same old story regurgitated & CGI was poor, however the dancing was impressive. Over priced 😕

The Dominion is a beautiful theatre and just across the road from the underground and with a really nice Cafe Rouge restaurant next door. I couldn't wait to see Lord of the Dance Dangerous Games, so I bought tickets for my daughter's birthday and bought the premium tickets at approx £90, in order to have a premium view. That was...

It was my first time at seeing Lord Of The Dance show and what a show! Amazing performances from every single dancer on stage in a beautiful theatre! Such s shame Michael Flatley wasn't there and hasn't done hardly any of the Dominion shows but just so unfortunate timing, his father had died and he was home in Ireland! His... More
