Theatre History

The original building that houses the Gillian Lynne Theatre was designed by Paul Tvrtkovic, and opened as the New London Theatre on 10 January 1973 with a production of The Unknown Soldier and his Wife starring Peter Ustinov.

The New London Theatre was renamed the Gillian Lynne Theatre by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber in May 2018 in honour of the legendary West End choreographer Gillian Lynne.

Prior to the building of the New London Theatre the site included the Old Mogul Tavern as early as 1828, which was modified and became the Middlesex Music Theatre from 1851. This was replaced with the Frank Matcham designed New Middlesex Theatre of Varieties, which then became the Winter Garden from 20 May 1919. The Winter Garden closed in 1959 and was then demolished in 1965.
