on October 2, 2011

The American Shakespeare Center’s 300-seat Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton (pop. 23,746) is the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s original indoor theater. The playwright’s works are performed under their original staging conditions on a simple stage, without elaborate sets, and with the audience sharing the same light as the actors.
