Named after leading actress, ballerina and choreographer, Dame Gillian Lynne, this West End theatre is best known as the home of Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats. It's more recently hosted Michael Morpurgo's War Horse and School of Rock.

Formerly named New London Theatre, the Gillian Lynne Theatre is a short walk from the famous Covent Garden market and piazza, the Royal Opera House and a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes.

Although a relatively modern building, with its present-day auditorium having been opened in the 1970s, live entertainment at this site can be traced back to the 17th century, when it was a tavern; and the mid-18th century, when it became a music hall.

Honestly, it feels newer than it really is, which is a serious testament to how well the place is cleaned and maintained, I think. And the stage itself is wonderful - a wide open space with rows and rows of seats... Mehr erfahren

Love this theatre! The layout is really easy to navigate, an escalator to the main area then some stairs leading to an open waiting area and finally clearly labelled stairs to each seating section. There were so many staff around who were very helpful and made everything run smoothly.

I sat in Stall A seat 2 - basically extremely close to the stage and to the right. I personally thought it... Mehr erfahren

3.5 stars. I just round up.

A few minutes walking from Covent Garden, this is a fairly modern theatre. No historical significances or intricate interior detailing. There are multiple stages here and I believe, two showings of War Horse happening simultaneously when I went to see it.

The building:

VERY clean. Easy to navigate. Spacious foyer for drinks. Accepts card for souvenir... Mehr erfahren

Tony- and Olivier-award 1927 musical touches on Southern racial prejudice and tragic enduring love staged on Mississippi show boat. Excellent vocals of opera-quality! Mehr erfahren
