Things you might not have know about theatre...

The largest West End Theatre is the London Palladium, which has a capacity of 2,286!

The entirety of the 432-capacity Fortune Theatre would fit on the giant stage area of the Dominion Theatre. 

The Dominion Theatre is the site of the Great Beer Flood, a tragedy in 1814 which claimed 8 lives after 570 tons of beer crashed through the wall of a nearby brewery and flooded the area. 

In the final week of 2016, more than 439,000 people attended West End Shows, setting a new weekly attendance record. 

A record number of people attended West End shows in 2016, with an average of 801 people per show, the highest since figures were first taken.
