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 80 million pound 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.
