Abstract

The article discusses theater audiences in early modern London, England, and argues that high social status and education on the part of patrons did not lead to better behavior or interest in more intellectual material. The popularity of early modern theater with members of all classes is commented on, and the similarities between lower-class amphitheaters and more exclusive "private" theaters are explored.
