Dame Gillian Lynne


'A unique light has gone out in the Musical Theatre with the loss of the great Gillian Lynne. Inspirational and indefatigable, wickedly funny and fabulously sexy, Gillie’s brilliantly inventive talents over the decades have illuminated the lives of all those who have had the luck to work with her as well as the audiences who have witnessed her magic. She always signed her notes to me “Taut and Tight” - it perfectly summed up both her timeless elegance and her extraordinary work ethic. We will all miss her beyond words, but I have no doubt she already has the angels rehearsing the Jellicle Ball up there in the Heaviside Layer! God bless her. She is truly unforgettable.' - Cameron Mackintosh
