National Theatre: Dorfman TheatreReplacing the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme. Improvements including additional and more comfortable seating mean that an extra 27,000 people each year can gain access to what are often sold-out performances. Further refurbishments include balconies with improved sightlines, equipping the auditorium for daytime education use, much needed new foyer space, improved acoustics, lighting and signage and a lift, making the Dorfman fully accessible for the first time.
