The Curtain Theatre, which is believed to have hosted the premieres of Romeo and Juliet and Henry V, was used by Shakespeare’s Company, the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, until his famous theatre The Globe opened in 1599.
Archeological discoveries like this always amaze me. The Curtain disappeared from historical record around 1622. It It’s interesting that a piece of history such as this theatre can disappear in a city like London, which has been constantly inhabited for centuries.
Archaeologists have discovered the remains of an Elizabethan theatre where some of William Shakespeare’s plays were first performed.
