Early Modern London Theatres (EMLoT)

Abstract: 
A resource that examines pre-1642 documents related to professional performance in purpose-built theatres and other permanent structures in the London area, and how these documents have been used in the proceeding four centuries.

REED's Early Modern London Theatres (EMLoT) is a research database and educational resource that lets you see what direct use has been made, over the last four centuries, of pre-1642 documents related to professional performance in purpose-built theatres and other permanent structures in the London area. It is not a comprehensive collection of those pre-1642 documents; rather, it charts the copies (or ‘transcriptions’) which were subsequently made of them.

REED - Patrons and Performances

Abstract: 
The REED Patrons and Performances Web Site is designed to include a wide range of data about professional performers on tour in the provinces – their patrons, the performance venues they used and the routes they took across the kingdom.

The Records of Early English Drama (REED) project is discovering fresh evidence about medieval and renaissance entertainment for publication in volumes for all English, Scottish and Welsh counties.
