Shakespeare Update

Experts find theatre where Shakespeare plays first staged: "The remains of a London theatre where William Shakespeare's early plays including 'Romeo And Juliet' were first performed have been discovered by archaeologists, a museum said Wednesday.

Shakespeare appeared at The Theatre in Shoreditch, east London, as an actor with a troupe called The Lord Chamberlain's Men, which also performed his efforts as a playwright there.

'Richard III', 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'The Merchant Of Venice' are among the other plays which are likely to have premiered at the theatre, according to the Museum of London, whose team made the discovery."
