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.
