“The breaking of the news that Gillian Lynne to the Heaviside Layer is left,” she writes, referring to a hemelachtige place in Cats. “I raise tonight the glass at you with tears in my eyes.”

Lynne began her career as a ballerina and ended up as rapidly at the prestigious The Royal Ballet. Later, she explained, focuses on choreography and direction. For Cats from 1981, she did both: the British was the choreographer of the musical and directed-helped. Not much later, she again went for Lloyd Webber to the battle, this time as choreographer for The Phantom of The Opera.

Lynne kept in 1986, the choreography of the revival of Cabaret in London’s West End. There she learned her husband, actor Peter Land, know. He made Sunday her death known. “Rest in peace my dear Gillie,” he wrote on Twitter. “She leaves a huge legacy behind, and was by all adored.”
