Subject: Financial/Company Structure of Players
Has anyone information on the financial and company structure of
Elizabethan acting companies?
How were profits shared?
Who retained control of the productions?
How were duties, responsibilities and profits decided?
I am forming a professional acting company that will focus on
Elizabethan, Jacobean and Spanish Golden-Age plays, and would like to
pattern it after the classic style, if there is one.
Please reply to me at
, or on the list.
