Early Modern London Theatres

Description: 

Early Modern London Theatres (EMLoT) " is a research database and educational resource that grew out of a collaboration between the Records of Early English Drama (REED) at the University of Toronto, the Department of Digital Humanities (DDH) at King's College London, and the Department of English at the University of Southampton". The first phrase of EMLoT "introduced records pertaining to the eight theatres north of the Thames"; the second phase (still in progress) "incorporates the theatres south of the Thames in the historic county of Surrey". This searchable database allows "you to 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".
