Dominion Theatre set for overhaul

The West End’s Dominion Theatre is to receive a multi-million pound makeover following the closure of We Will Rock You.

From 31st May, the London venue will be dark for three months after the cast of We Will Rock You take their final bow. The Queen musical, which opened 12 years ago, brought with it its own equipment meaning the theatre will be also receive a technical refurbishment. A new PA system, lighting system and flying system are set to be installed.

David Stone, who will be overseeing the theatre’s technical redevelopment said the venue would be able to stand “the heaviest flying shows. The aim is to say ‘this is one of the most technically capable theatres in the West End’.”

Other work will include restoring many of the theatre’s original features which have been painted over or removed. The theatre will also benefit from a new carpet, new toilets and a new temperature system. The management are claiming the development work will make the Dominion one of the most “environmentally friendly” theatres in the West End.

The Dominion Theatre will re-open its doors to the public in September. A new show is yet to be announced.
