Dear David,

Two summers ago I had the same desire when I visited London.  I
contacted a wonderful London guide before I left Indiana and told him
what I was looking to see.  Reg Parks did his homework and when we got
together, he took my wife and I on a walking tour of all the London
places Shakespeare would have possibly visited including the theater
sites.  We spent eight wonderful hours walking and Reg was a wealth of
information and a wonderful companion.  Obviously, most of the sites
from the Elizabethan era are long gone, but Reg knows where they stood.
I cannot recommend anyone more highly.  You can contact him at the
following phone and address.  When you call or write, please remind him
of me and let him know how much I enjoyed our time together.

Reg Parks
phone from the US 011-44-181-464-4369
local  0181-464-4369

9 Hawes Road Bromley, Kent
BR1  3JS  United Kingdom
FAX # 44 (0) 1812900663

I hope this helps and I think you'll enjoy your visit greatly.

Sincerely,
Joe Conlon
Warsaw, Indiana, USA

Don't know about the Curtain or Phoenix, but there's a plaque in the
approximate area where the Theatre used to be, where Great Eastern
Street meets Curtain Road. Ditto the Fortune: on the imaginatively-named
Fortune St, northeast of Barbican.

To learn about the sites of early London theatres, consult _English
Professional Theatre, 1530-1660_ (Cambridge: CUP, 2000).  In his section
of the volume, Herbert Berry presents documents illustrating the history
of all 23 London theatres before 1642, and gives exact locations in
modern
London where they were located.
