Most of Shakespeare's fortune came for performing at the theater.

Theater in the English Renaissance

Theater was outdoor until it got closed because of the Black Plague; there were more than 3 closers.

White curtains meant comedies, while black curtains meant drama.

Women weren’t allowed on stage because of James VI.

People went to the theater not to watch the plays but to socialize and gamble.

Couriers went around all day promoting the play would be played at night.

Men had to dress up as women.

The men wore lots of makeup to make them appear as women which led to many deaths because of the high lead content in the makeup.
