Some have denounced the New York Public Theater for encouraging violence against President Trump.

Elizabethan Theater - Shakespeare Fun Facts Acting was not a highly paid or highly respected profession. Actors were seen as vagrant troublemakers who promoted hard living and sin. In the 16th century, actors traveled from town to town on a cart, looking for audiences to pay to watch them perform. Playhouses were not constructed in London until 1576.
