Will Shakespeare's first theatre be destroyed?
The Telegraph reports, "Shakespeare's first theatre discovered in London." Buried at end of the article is this clipping, "The site is owned by Plough Yard Developments, which plan to feature the remains as part of a new office, retail and residential space." I certainly hope they keep the area of Shakespeare's first theatre in tact.
Here's an idea:
Since they making the space into office, retail, and residential; they should take that area and make it into like my Giddings Plaza (pictured above). Tucked in between the residential and retail spaces, Giddings Plaza has a little stage. The area has become quite a social gathering place with benches on a brick plaza.
Just like Giddings plaza has performances every Thursday night in the summer, this stage could have outdoor peformances as well. People sitting in the plaza could say, "yeah, this is where Shakespeare's first theatre was" while eating yummy gelatos. Read about more treasures to discover at Giddings Plaza in my yelp review.
