1576 - The site of 4-6 New Inn Broadway is located on parts of the only surviving remains of London’s first purpose-built playhouse (‘The Theatre’, built in 1576). This first Elizabethan playhouse had strong connections to Shakespeare and performances of his plays. ‘The Theatre’ is thought to have been dismantled in December 1598 and its timbers were taken across London Bridge for use in the construction of ‘The Globe’ theatre in 1599.
