Covering numerous reincarnations from Sir Christopher Wren’s first theatre on the site to Benjamin Wyatt’s 1812 building which now houses the majority of the public foyer spaces – some of which have been compromised by later additions.
The re -seated auditorium will become far more theatrically effective, significantly improving the actor/audience relationship by adjusting the tier front geometries and bringing the stage further into the room. Legroom and sightlines will be improved by re -raking and reconfiguring the seating galleries. The scheme will ensure that the new foyers will be more comfortable, more flexible and more enjoyable for audiences and visitors throughout the day.
