The Dominion stands prominently, dazzlingly at night, at the Tottenham Court Road tube stop, easily found as it's across the street from the mid-century skyscraper Centre Point. If you're lost wandering around Theatre Land, look for Centre Point and you're there. The current production is We Will Rock You, using the music of Queen, playing since 2002. I personally would have liked to have seen the Leslie Bricusse musical Scrooge, which played here in 1996-97. I've never been in it, but I hope it's still as flamboyantly deco as its exterior. It opened in 1930 as a cinema and for years was used for movie premieres.
