The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 19.0630 Wednesday, 5 November 2008
Date: Sunday, 2 Nov 2008 19:21:34 -0800
Subject: Blackfriars Theatre Floorplans
While I can find many floorplans, diagrams, and estimates of dimensions (many
due to C. W. Hodges) of the original Globe Theatre(s) that stood in
Shakespeare's days, it seems much more difficult to find information about the
Blackfriars Theatre. I'm wondering if anyone might be able to point me to books,
journals, or other references that may shed light on the historical consensus of
what the original Blackfriars might have "looked" like, or perhaps send me
scans, or perhaps detailed photography of the current Blackfriars Theatre.
