Last year, theatre lost one of its greats. Gillian Lynne – who was world-renowned for her direction, staging and choreography – sadly passed away on 1 July 2018. To celebrate the life and work of the prolific director-choreographer, an evening of special and star-studded performances dedicated to her memory will take place at the Gillian Lynne Theatre on 2 July 2019 – just one year and one day after her death.

To Gillie, With Love will see stars of the world of dance, theatre, film and TV such as Beverly Knight and Sergei Polunin come together to show their admiration and thanks to this unique and remarkable individual who helped, guided and inspired so many.

Celebrating iconic moments from her lifelong and extensive career, the evening will feature performances from Anthony Barclay, Christopher Biggins, Sierra Boggess, Greg Castiglioni, Lorna Dallas, Ben Forster, Anna Francolini, Jason Gardiner, Nickolas Grace, Linzi Hateley, Michael Howe, Ramin Karimloo, Hannah Kenna Thomas, Jeremy Kerridge, Beverley Knight, Peter Land, Emily Langham, Annabel Leventon, Iain Mackay, Robert Meadmore, New Adventures Company, Caroline O’Connor, Jonjo O’Neil, Richard O’Brien, Sergei Polunin, Stuart Matthew Price, Hugh Quarshie, Jack Rebaldi, Liz Robertson, Sir Ken Robinson, Tamara Rojo, Jamie Safir, Wayne Sleep, Scarlett Strallen, Una Stubbs, and Hannah Waddingham.

Gillian’s career spanned over half a century. She directed over 60 productions in the West End and on Broadway, worked on 11 feature films and hundreds of television productions but she’s most well-known for her work on Cats and The Phantom Of The Opera. Prior to her work behind the scenes, she was a ballerina and was the leading soloist at Sadler’s Wells and the star dancer at the London Palladium.

As well as celebrating Gillian’s life and work, To Gille, With Love will also see the launch of the Lynne and Land Foundation, which Gillian and her husband Peter Land established to help talented young performers by providing scholarships and grants in the choreographic arts, drama and musical theatre.

Tickets to To Gillie, With Love start from £85 and are available here.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
