The Dominion Theatre is one of the largest and most perfectly designed theatrical venues in London. It is home to a wide auditorium where every seat has a perfect view, a wealth of hospitality suites, impressive public foyers and large bar areas. Located directly above Tottenham Court Road tube station it is easy to find and easy to get to by public transport. The Dominion is also home to Dominion Events, the Dominion Theatre's in house Events department. They hire out and organise events, meetings and corporate events and hospitality in the theatre's 9 event spaces which include the Main Auditorium, The Studio and The Boardroom. In September 2014 the Dominion Theatre completed a 4 month long, multi million pound refurbishment project to restore the theatre to her original 1929 grandeur.

We went to see Grease on Saturday 13th august at 7.30pm, we had a really good view from back row stalls XX35 and 36. The show was great, they ask for no singing until the end mega mix of all the songs. Really good performance and would definitely go again. The drinks were £6 for two cokes and they were pre ordered to be delivered in the interval. All in all very happy with the dominion theatre

Grease. Friday May 6th. Evening performance.

Let's start with the positives
The show itself was very good. Glad to see security doing proper bag checks at the entrance with my bag thoroughly checked, and (as per the clearly displayed notices) no big food was allowed in (much to the despair of a lady in front of me with a small bag of take away food.)

The dancing and choreography was absolutely first class. The staging and decor was transformed to fit the show very well indeed, with the 1950's auditorium music before the show setting the scene brilliantly. Olivia Moore, The actress playing Sandy, was spectacular on vocals. Beautiful renditions of the well known Sandy numbers and duets. She stood out as the big star of the show. Peter Andre was hilarious as Fontaine and justifiably got a great reception when he made his official stage entrance during the second half. (We only hear him/see him in shadow in the DJ booth in the first half.) But his stage entrance was spoiled by late comers.

Which brings me to the negatives. Very poor crowd control. I say this as someone who has worked (and still does work) in events. (27 years and running)
Late comers were not escorted to their seats properly and left to stand in the aisles and get the attention of guests trying to watch the show. During key dialogue moments is not the time; better during a dance routine or big up beat number surely? "Hopelessly devoted" was ruined by a group at the back of stalls, laughing and speaking loudly, seemingly unimpeded in their bit of private fun. (Many in my area were looking back in disgrace, and the song was ruined.)
That needs tighter control. Stewards need to be seen to be doing their job.

Would recommend the show but stars deducted for poor crowd control.

Myself and a friend (who both have stage 4 secondary breast cancer and both have disabled access requirements) went to the Dominion Theatre Friday 23rd September to see Grease the musical. When we arrived extra early and explained we could not stand in the queue due to access requirements a really nice security man called Mohammed explained that was no problem and he would personally allow us in to be seated with no queuing so please can you give Mohammed a huge thank you from myself (Hannah) and also Claire. Also when we got in the theatre a member of staff called Rebecca saw us personally to our seats and also saw us to the toilets then kept my crutch stick for me so it was out of the way for the performance and brought it back to me during the interval. Rebecca ensured we had our food and drink upon our request and brought us our pre-ordered refreshments at the interval. Rebecca helped us from start to finish and was one of the nicest member of staff we could of asked for - please ensure Rebecca and Mohammed are accredited for their incredible service and please thank them from both of us.
Kind regards

Just been to see Elf the Musical with young family - show was great, I want to comment on the venue. Beautiful huge theatre but the management of it, very lacking. Huge queues to get in - didn’t let people in until nearly 7pm resulting in a huge surge of people that could have been avoided. View of the stage from stalls was great but for £120 a ticket (even for the children) it wants to be! As our children were young and small we went to get two booster seats which are now chargeable at £1 each. I mean....seriously?! A charge for a booster seat?!! Should be ashamed of yourselves. To avoid the interval queues we tried to order from the link texted over but due to no service and the very poor Dominion Wi-fi we gave up. Poor signage for the stalls toilets meant us having to walk up to the circle to find the gents.
All in all, could do a lot better as a customer experience.

Booked our disabled son (autism , diabetes and ADHD) tickets to see the Elf musical, unable to attend due to the planned south eastern train strikes.

We gave the theatre plenty of notice but was told we couldn’t have a refund. Which was fine as we were happy to change the date. When asking to change the tickets to another date. They told us they wouldn’t change them yet as the strikes might get cancelled. We said we would rather change now than take the risk and that due to our sons autism he struggles when plans are changed last min.

There was the same seats available on different dates that they wouldn’t change us to and was told to phone a week before our date. During that time all the suitable seats in our section sold out. We were told we could have seats in another section at an extra cost of 37.50 per person but due too our sons needs he can’t sit in the middle of the section he has to be on the end.

We was told we could swap our tickets to other section with an isle seat at the extra cost of £70 per person. We said we couldn’t afford to spend at extra £210 and it wasn’t our fault that the theatre wouldn’t swap our dates when the same tickets were available.

My son has been looking forward to this show for months as it’s one of his favourite Christmas film. He now thinks he’s done something wrong and that’s why we are no longer going. Really disappointed in the theatres attitude to our sons disabilities. They could have swapped the tickets when we first requested. They have kept out money knowing we can’t go and the customer service really didn’t show any empathy at all.

My wife and I , along with our teenage daughters, had booked to see Elf the musical. Upon being shown to our seats we found they they were already taken. Probably due to a hectic Christmas schedule, we had turned up a day late and our tickets were for the previous day. Entirely our fault, however we spoke with the Booking Office and asked if they would honour our tickets for the performance, they flatly refused.
We politely argued that , as they had already had our money and that there were many empty seats, surely they could accommodate us. Despite the fact that the performance was due to start they said we would have to pay for new tickets.
At this stage I spoke to the theatre manager whom I assumed would be sympathetic, what a mistake that was, Utterly pathetic, hiding behind the usual excuse , ‘ It’s not our policy ‘ .
Apparently it’s better to leave seats empty.
My wife and eldest daughter basically refused , on principle, to pay for further tickets.
My youngest daughter was extremely disappointed as this was the final night of the I swallowed my pride and paid for two tickets, We then sat and watched the Show surrounded by rows of empty seats.
We are regular theatre patrons , also my Bar / Nightclub, ‘ Freedom ‘ in Soho is well known as a supporter and friend to West End theatre performers.
The Cast were fantastic, as to the Booking Office and the Manager, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Got this as an Xmas present so had been really looking forward, got there early and by the start the theatre was still half embty, I went at End of July, the theatre was lovely, only the show lacked any real story line, the first half was back and forth and had songs not original to the film, sandy I think was on stay about 5 times, no chemistry between her and Danny, although she had a good voice, couldn't tell what any one was saying as they spoke really fast and no dictation, they did pause for laughs but for me couldn't make out what was going on, a bit vulgar in parts with the language and innuendos, Peter Andre lightened the mood with his performance which I really enjoyed, but as they all wore pink and were all acting camp, not too sure we're that came from the actress was lost as she was in pink too. Overall not a believable performance, no chemistry at all. I left very disappointed. I believe my ticket was 99 pounds fro front row stalls so had good view, I paid 75 for same view, seating to watch wicked and that was amazing, I would advise to avoid this one,

Just had the most terrible experience with Manager Matt and his two security guards. Popped out in the interval to grab some food. On our way back in, the security stopped us and said no food inside. We said there are lots of people who have brought food inside. One of the security guards then said no hot food, you can go back to the restaurant and ask them to hold it for you. We returned to the resturant, they said they could not hold it and to put in our bag. We did that, on returning we were searched, I said the resturant wouldnt take it, so it is in my bag, we wont eat it until afterwards. The lady security refused and told us to put it in the bin. My sister challenged and said lots of other people have hot food in there including the people sitting next to us. They did not even attempt to investigate that and the lady security asked me to hand the food over to her to put it in the bin, I did so, and she said “say please” which I found incredibly patronising. So I responded and said “why please? don’t worry i will put it in the bin myself” she then immediately radioed her manager who is apparently Matt. He stormed over (so aggressively) and just said “you can’t bring food in” I started to explain and he interrupted me, not allowing me to finish, repeating that it is “their policy” my sister then said she had previously had sweets and crisps inside, he then said “I know what food is” it was completely confrontational. He then said that he was not going to let us in “based on this conversation”. I responded “we have not raised our voices or sworn, so i don’t understand”. The security then asked us to leave. It was completely absurd! Such a complete over reaction. He was exerting his authority way more than necessary and had no concern about our experience or customer service. I asked him “are you honestly not going to let us in to see the second half of the show, that we have paid for based on this” he turned his head up and said “yes”. Our mother was inside who is disabled by the way, we suggested that he speak with her, he said “he has made his mind up”. Honestly my sister and I were so flabbergasted with the treatment. I was waaay overboard and ridiculous. What he should have done was to hear our explanation (without interrupting), explained the policy, said that there may have been a miscommunication or something, allowed us to put it in the bin, and welcomed us in. He did not resolve the problem at all, and had made his decision up quite clearly on the way to us, as he stormed over. Never have we ever been treated like this at the Theatre, as I said it was completely ridiculous and exerting his control way beyond reasonable.

Lets Start with the good bit, the Venue is stunning inside and the staff are very helpful. Now onto the negatives. The show - Grease. One the best know and feel good shows, well they butchered it. Have they never heard of the phrase if it isn't broke don't fix it. Put the show back to how it was and bin the new waste of time songs. Now the dreadful bit
I came alone, so I went to the website and selected the show, I wanted a matinee, then selected a single person not spotting that this then swapped it to the evening show. so i booked the wrong show. when i realised i contacted the box office but got told because it is within 48hours of the show tough, absolutely appalling customer service from londonboxoffice. Also a lousy website, why when you change the number of people does it change the performance time too?

First time we had been to the Dominion Theatre, its really nice, easy to get to. Though we did walk a mile back to our hotel after as getting a taxi is impossible.

We went to see Grease, couple of songs that weren't in original. First half was a bit slow but second half was great.
You are not allowed to join in singing or take pictures/video until the very end.
Peter Andre was in the show we saw, not the best actor!
