Usually when we think of Shakespeare, plays like ‘Romeo and Juliet’ or ‘Hamlet’ come to mind. Let me suggest the masterpiece that is ‘Twelfth Night.’
On this very day in 1613, the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, William Shakespeare’s acting company, were doing their usual performance of Henry VIII. But unlike usual, this performance was ended by flames.
Some bars in London are still open since the 16th century, which means you can have a pint where Shakespeare did. Cheers!
