The Elizabethan era

The theater experience has changed since 17th century, back then the audience would eat, drink and talk during plays. The plays where always performed in the afternoon because the theater had a open roof for light. There where no women who performed in the plays, women characters where intstead played by male actors.

The modern Globe

The Elizabethan era was a time associated with Queen Elizabeth I's reign (1558–1603) and is often considered to be the golden age in English history. It was the height of the English Renaissance and saw the flowering of English poetry, music and literature. This was also the time during which Elizabethan theatre flourished, and William Shakespeare and many others composed plays that broke free of England's past style of theatre. It was an age of exploration and expansion abroad, while back at home, the Protestant Reformation became more acceptable to the people, most certainly after the Spanish Armada was repulsed. It was also the end of the period when England was a separate realm before its royal union with Scotland.

To be, or not to be, that is the question.
