On Monday 1 June, following Michael Flatley’s last ever UK television performance on the Final of ITV1’s Britain’s Got Talent, sales for his West End show Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games broke the Dominion Theatre box office records for the highest number of tickets sold and most money taken in one day.
Michael Flatley said, “We’re delighted to have made a little bit of history in the West End. London and the UK in general have been very good to us and we feel very at home here.”
General Manager at the Dominion Theatre, David Pearson, said, “We are delighted that Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games has broken the record for daily sales at the Dominion Theatre Box Office. I know that this phenomenal show will continue to thrill our audiences through until September.”
Flatley’s new show Dangerous Games has exciting and ground-breaking new technology, including holographs, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and the greatest team of Irish Dancers in the world, making it the perfect family entertainment. A new score composed by Gerard Fahy, new costumes and special effects lighting add a breath-taking new dimension to the original masterpiece.
