‘Andrew Lloyd Webber has today announced that the New London Theatre is to be renamed in honour of the trailblazing choreographer Dame Gillian Lynne.
The Theatre will be formally recognised as the Gillian Lynne Theatre later this year and will be the first West End theatre to be named after a woman. It will also be the first theatre in the UK to be named after a choreographer.’
Huge congratulations to Gilly, one of the great choreographers of modern times. She was responsible for Cats, Phantom, Beauty and the Beast and many other successful productions. She’s also one of the few people in the world who was ever capable of cajoling Mike into dancing.
