  • The Royal National Theatre has three stages: The Olivier Theatre, The Lyttelton Theatre and The Cottesloe Theatre
  • The building and its brutalist architecture divides opinion
  • Prince Charles is quoted as saying the Royal National Theatre is 'a clever way of building a nuclear power station in the middle of London without anyone objecting'. The poet Sir John Betjamin said he 'gasped with delight at the cube of your theatre in the pale blue sky and a glimpse of St. Paul's to the south of it. It is a lovely work and so good from so many angles...it has that inevitable and finished look that great work does'
