Summary

Elizabethan London was a vibrant, growing city—and theater, especially that of William Shakespeare, played a major role in its lively culture. There was even a different play every day of the week! Here's your ticket to the Globe, the legendary 20-sided building where Shakespeare's plays were staged. Go backstage to discover how the theater was run, who chose the actors, how big an audience it could hold, and why it was build on the banks of the Thames. Extraordinary illustrations give a dramatic look at life and art in the sixteenth century.
