ABOUT THE DOMINION THEATRE LONDON:-

Built in 1929 on a site that was once a leper colony and a brewery which, when its 22-foot high vat of ale burst (in 1814) and its contents poured into the street, was responsible for 20 deaths, many people drowning in alcohol. For its early musicals the Dominion struggled to attract audiences. Turning to cinema it was the venue for the revised "The Phantom Of The Opera", starring Lon Chaney. In 1931 the premiere of "City Lights" was held there, attended by its star Charlie Chaplin, and by King George V.

In the following years a number of famous stars appeared in variety including Judy Garland in 1957, until in 1958 the theatre once again turned to film when the Todd-AO equipment was installed for "South Pacific". This four-year success was followed by an even more successful "Sound Of Music", which ran from 1965 to 1968. Since then the theatre has played host to a variety of blockbuster films interspersed with Georgian dancers, Chinese acrobats, and pop groups.

Most recent productions include: "Grease" (1993 - 1996); "Scrooge" (1996 - 1997), and in 1997 Disney's Beauty And The Beast opened for what was expected to be a long run, but declining audience numbers forced the shows closure at the end of 1999. "Notre-Dame de Paris" (based on Victor Hugo's novel) ran from May 2000 until 2001.
