See Shakespeare as it was originally staged

“The play’s the thing,” wrote Shakespeare. While the play may still be what’s most important, the right venue can definitely enhance the performance. This is especially true when seeing one of the Bard’s works performed at the American Shakespeare Center in Staunton, Va. The theater is a faithful re-creation of London’s Blackfriars Playhouse, which operated circa 1598-1642 and where many of the playwright’s works were first performed.
