Evolution

Bâtiment: The Dominion was built in 1928–29, designed by W and TR Milburn with a steel-framed construction and a concave Portland stone facade. Although the Dominion wasn't designed as a Cinema, its early failure as a live Theatre meant that in 1930, just a year after opening, the Theatre was converted to one. The Theatre has had many alterations over the years and gradually various parts of it were converted to offices and such like. In 1958 the Upper Circle was closed, never to open again, so far anyway. The Dominion was converted back to live Theatre use in 1981.

James Keegan as Lord of the Dance 

Commentaire:

Features new staging, new costumes and new choreography. Based on Irish folklore, this is the classic tale of Good vs. Evil, expressed through the universal language of dance. It's the story of the Little Spirit, who travels through time to help the Lord of the Dance protect his people from the challenge of Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord. As this dark power challenges our hero, the adventure draws you into a mythical universe of love, danger, and desire, created by an orchestrated combination of precision dancing, state of the art lighting and pyrotechnics.  (plus)

"We Will Rock You" bat le record de représentations détenu par "Grease"

Commentaire:

The 2,000 seat Dominion was filled with enough hi-tech plasma screens, lasers and massive pyrotechnic effects to fill a techno trade fair. The show had clearly cost a fortune and would need to do huge business to cover its costs. Its chances were rated at nil. It received some of the worst notices ever, including remarks like: "Ben Elton should be shot for this risible story”, “sticky goo", “Utterly preposterous”, “ a disastrous excuse for a musical”, “the show should die of chronic embarrassment”, “precious little rhapsodic here”, “a pathetic adolescent piece of work”, “don’t give them your money”. (However, some individual performances received praise).
“We Will Rock You” went on to became the longest running musical at that venue, et se joue toujours dix ans plus tard! (Like the damning reviews for “Charlie Girl” in 1965, and the gloomy predictions for “Les Miserables” in 1985, it only goes to show the critics do not always get it right.)  (plus)

Commentaire:


This sung-through French-Canadian musical based on Victor Hugo’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” had opened in Paris in 1998 to phenomenal success. It began life as a concept album and the production was effectively a massive rock-concert, lavishly staged with acrobatics, gymnastics, trapeze-work, spectacular choreography involving body-popping, abseiling and “political” updating with the chorus portrayed as asylum-seeking refugees. It was performed to pre-recorded music tracks (with a live string quintet playing extracts from the score in the circle bar during the interval to satisfy the outrage from the Musicians Union). In spite of its massive success in Paris and Quebec, it was slaughtered by the London critics. The very few who managed to appreciate the music and admire the effects agreed with the many who derided the lyrics, the scenery, costumes and the sheer overwhelming vulgarity of the staging and concept. In spite of bad notices, it survived a 16 month run, closing at the start of October, 2001  (plus)

Commentaire:

Notes: Based on the 1991 Disney film, seven new songs were written for the stage musical with lyrics by Tim Rice. Howard Ashman, the original lyricist, had died in 1991. The Broadway production ran for 5,461 performances between 1994 and 2007. The show had been staged in eight other cities before coming to London and was said to have cost £10 million, the most expensive musical ever staged in the West End. It was lavish, spectacular and filled with magical effects and a superb re-creation of the famous “Be Our Guest” sequence from the film - a sequence which never failed to stop the show. From the opening, when a witch soared high in the air, to the finale, where the Beast was magically transformed back into a handsome Prince, this was a show that delighted even the most cynical of the critics. During the London run replacements for Belle included Michelle Gayle and Annalene Beechey, and John Barrowman and Earl Carpenter as the Beast. The production won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical in 1998. The world-wide box office takings for this show went on to exceed $1.4 billion, and the production has since been seen in 13 countries and 115 cities.  (plus)

This was a touring production in London for the Christmas season. It was felt to be a poor musical, but a jolly enough Christmas pageant. Most of the critics managed to come out with “Bah, humbug!”  (plus)

Commentaire:

Based on the 1928 novel by Vicki Baum and originally produced in New York on Nov 12th 1989 where it ran for 1.018 performances. The show was given without an interval, and since it lasted just over two hours this was the source of much comment. Although the production was greatly praised, for its performers, staging and direction, it only managed to run for four months.  (plus)

Commentaire:

The husband and wife team who wrote this show were supported by the Daily Mirror, who urged their readers to become “angels” and invest in this, the “peoples’ musical”. Hundreds of readers contributed small sums, and a former chauffeur put up £500,000 of his life’s savings, thus raising the £1.25 million needed. The opening night was cheered to the rafters by a house packed with hundreds of investors, but the critics were damning (“three thousand angels and not a prayer”, “Pass the loaves and fishes, they need a miracle”). Despite a blessing from the Pope for the cast and authors, and the investors coming up with more money, the show came off after 3 weeks, losing all its investment.  (plus)

David Timson (Judge Lagus), Laurence Olivier (Akash, the Ultimate Word in Truth - a Hologram) 

Commentaire:

This show had cost a staggering £4 million and embraced a circular stage that tilted upwards into the vertical plane, and contained batteries of lights, stroboscopes and lasers turning the whole auditorium into a “sensuround galaxy”.
The sound-system was intended to set all the seats vibrating to simulate the lift-off of a rocket into outer-space.
Laurence Olivier appeared as a hologram inside a giant floating egg which opened at various intervals to comment upon the need for Truth.
After the first year the Cliff Richard role was taken over by David Cassidy, and then later by David Ian.
The show ran for two years but failed to break even because of its huge running costs. Following a dispute between the owners of the Dominion Theatre and Dave Clarke the show suddenly closed in April 1988 even though there were advance ticket sales for the following six months. Refunds were given.  (plus)
