Venue overview

The Gillian Lynne Theatre, previously known as the New London Theatre, is one of the newest buildings on the West End, which is reflected in the comfort of seating. Opening in 1973, the concrete theatre has housed some of London’s most esteemed productions and is best-known for hosting Cats for an extensive 21 years. The National Theatre’s multiple award-winning War Horse played at the theatre from 2009-2016, followed by a five-star revival of Show Boat. Now, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway hit School of Rock the Musical entertains audiences.

Split across two levels, the Gillian Lynne Theatre features a thrust stage that juts into the auditorium, causing seats to surround the stage in square horseshoe shape. Seats in rows I-S face the stage side-on.

In May 2018, after previously having been known as the New London Theatre, the Gillian Lynne Theatre got its current name in honour of the legendary dancer and choreographer.

Good value seats

Discounts are available both the Circle and in seats down the sides of the thrust stage, which offer very angled views of the stage. Fortunately, productions that come to the Gillian Lynne Theatre play to all sides of the audience, so you will never feel left out sitting here!

Premium seats

The best seats in the Gillian Lynne Theatre are located in the mid-front section of the Stalls, with the central most section offering the best views. Seats are well-raked, ensuring a great view from anywhere. It is recommended to sit in seats 15-37 for the most central view.

The far right side of Stalls on the end of the row means you get quite an extreme side view but due to the nature of the staging there is very little missed. For the cheapest price band in the theatre, this provides a great and up close view of the s... More

This theatre is new and it’s fantastic. It feels like a concert auditorium which works brilliantly when watching School of Rock. The view is fantastic and there isn’t anyone directly in front of you because the seating is raked. We were so close to t... More
