Per the Via Meadia, British archaeologists have discovered the remains of the other Shakespearean theater in an alley behind a London pub.  This was the Curtain Theater: not quite as famous as The Globe, but significant because it was the initial home to Shakespeare’s acting company, The Chamberlain’s Men, and it was one of the first theaters to stage The Bard’s plays, premiering some of the most famous ones, like Henry V and Romeo and Juliet.

The location of the Curtain was apparently lost to historians shortly after The Globe opened.  Now that it has been found again, there are plans afoot to turn it into a tourist attraction as quickly as possible.

Great news for history and literature buffs!
