Fodor's Expert Review American Shakespeare Center

Staunton Theater

Experience Shakespeare's plays the way the Elizabethans did at the American Shakespeare Center, the world's only re-creation of the bard's indoor playhouse, which has gained acclaim for its attention to detail. Unlike the open-air Globe Theatre styled around a courtyard, this theater was, in its time, an innovative indoor winter venue. As in 17th-century London, most seating consists of benches (modern seat backs and cushions are available), and some stools are right on stage.
