Author Information

Marcia Williams went to visit the Globe Theatre while it was being rebuilt. "It wasn't until I was actually there," she says, "that the full impact of the environment hit me. Elizabethan actors didn't rehearse; and the audience was encouraged to cheer when they liked something and to shout (and throw things) when they didn't. It must have been quite a scene."

Review quote

"An inviting taste of the Shakespearean buffet, as well as a rare glimpse into the character of Elizabethan theater."
