About The Gillian Lynne Theatre

The Gillian Lynne theatre (formerly New London Theatre) is a wholly contemporary building. But the site has been home to a series of entertainment venues for a long time, dating right back to Elizabethan times. Nell Gwynne, the infamous mistress of King Charles the Second, was reputed to frequent the tavern on the site, which was once marvellously called the 'Great Mogul', where, in the early 1700s, trendy 'Glee Clubs' and sing-songs were held in the hall next door.

Absolute must see.
This musical has been around for five years so I’m amazed that I hadn’t heard of it before. Having now seen it, my wife and I think it’s the best musical we’ve seen in many years. The story is essentially about the Park Hill housing estate in Sheffield, but it also charts the political landscape in Britain over the last sixty years. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure and Richard Hawleys songs fit seamlessly into the storyline. Do yourself a favour and see it while you can. 5 Stars.

The Political & Personal Intertwine with Great Staging
The play covers three families over a span of 50 years in a Sheffield housing project. Through the prism of their lives, we see the era’s wrenching economic and political changes. Brilliantly staged, the families pass in and out, sometimes overlapping, on the same set. Original music performed by talented singers and a terrific band was riveting and memorable.
