In its prime the Rose Theatre paved the way for other theatres to be built. It was one of only four public theatres to be built in Elizabethan times. Only theatres like “The Curtain” and “The Theatre” were built before it. It was built in 1587 by Philip Henslowe, an Elizabethan theatrical entrepreneur who was looking for the next big thing and anything that would make him money at the time. originally it was too small and was subsequently enlarged when well know actor Edward (Ned) Alleyn moved in with his crew. 1592-94 saw the outbreak of the bubonic plague which forced al the theatres at the time to close, including the Rose and as a result no profits were being made by Henslowe. When the plague passed, it reopened and was back in business. It was very popular because it hadhttp://www.rosetheatre.org.uk/ two levels to its stage so scenes were more realistic such as Juliet on her Balcony in Romeo and Juliet. The Admirals Men, the acting crew led by Ned Alleyn, occupied the theatre for years; however, when the Lords Chamberlains Men built the new and improved globe, it presented heavy competition for the Rose and it eventually forced them out of business in 1605. The Rose Theatre was instrumental in the success of Shakespeare and his plays because it helped bring them to life with its very realistic setting.
