This was our first visit to the Dominion Theatre. It is a very lovely building with good views of the stage and very comfortable seats. And, having seen Aled Jones in White Christmas a few years ago we were looking forward to this performance. What a let down. The songs were not sung - we were shouted at in mock... More

Lovely theatre and beautifully decorated for Christmas. I love the film and have been to a theatre production of White Christmas a few years ago. It is a lovely afternoon out and very Christmassy. However, it is not the best production. If you want it be true to the film it is reasonable but not 100%. Aled Jones is great... More

My mother and I went to see the matinee of White Christmas on Wednesday 10 December. Having never taken my mother to a theatre in a wheelchair before and rather anxious how I was going to manage, I was most impressed when the door was opened by a young man, smartly dressed who said 'hello, my name is Oliver and...

This is a lovely theatre, spacious and room to move around in unlike some other old theatres. The seats were comfortable and there was good leg room, certainly in row J. The evening I visited it was cold outside and abut too warm inside so water and ice cream required in the interval!

oh my goodness! How poorly put together ! began to think I had gone to a church hall amateur production-particularly as there was no announcement or note that Aled Jones would not be appearing ;this is not acceptable;glad I wasn't in a coach party from Wales.We left before the very end-something I have never done before but it was painstakingly...

Have to agree with most of the critics. Irritating shrill voices and American accents badly done. Slow, boring production. My friend thought she had lost the tickets - wish she had. We left well before the end, thinking what a wast of £80 per ticket!

I love this theatre. Full of character and art deco charm. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the entrance has the "wow" factor in bucket loads.

Critics have paned it, but to be honest it was a great couple of hours, but OMG what were they thinking with the stage Christmas tree ! It was totally naff - and whilst I understand it's only a ten week run with a limited budget, are you telling me they couldn't spring for a decent stage tree, mind you... More

We were disappointed that Aled Jones was on compassionate leave, but his understudy (can't remember his name) did a good job. It is a truly lovely show, in the old tradition. Wendi Peters was amazing! Tom Chambers and the little girl played well. The sets & costumes are excellent & truly take you back to 1954. Dominion is a lovely... More

Having looked forward to this for quite some time, I was somewhat disappointed with the show. The first few numbers were good, had good energy and that Christmas sparkle. However the remainder of act 1 failed to get any kind of Christmas spirit going. I can only explain it in that I felt as though the cast were tired and... More
