    I hope he improves his act for next time, if he ever has a “next time.”

    According to my English teacher, in Shakespearean times, if the audience didn’t like the play, they would often storm the stage and beat up the actors.
    (Apparently, men played all the roles as well … Romeo and Juliet must have been a strange play to watch!

    That’s quite true — women weren’t allowed to become actresses until sometime in the 18th Century, and it was because the only women who hung around theaters before then were typically prostitutes. It was a custom that dated all the way back to the original tradition of the theater in Ancient Greece that all female parts were played in drag by young men (preferably right around the time they reached puberty).

    I heavily sexist countries men played women’s roles. See Japanese Kabuki.

    Good thing he wasn’t performing at a Christmas Boar’s Head feast:

    “Knave, we have already one Boar’s Head on the table – we need not another!”

    Minor correction—in England, actresses were permitted on stage at the time of the Restoration, about 1660. See Nell Gwynn, Sarah Siddons, Elizabeth Barry, & Moll Davis, to name a few. (the French may have had them a little sooner)

    Watch Shakespeare in Love to see a boy play Juliet.
