Hardy M. Cook quoted Maev Kennedy, writing in The Guardian (and presumably following an overheated press release):

 

>Well preserved remains of Shakespeare’s original “wooden O” stage, the 

>Curtain theatre where Henry V and Romeo and Juliet were first performed,

>have been discovered in a yard in east London

 

Henry V was, indeed, probably first performed at The Curtain, but R&J was first performed at The Theatre.
