Quick Takes

A new Rose for Shakespeare

September 15, 2009|Associated Press

In a case of life imitating art imitating life, a British theater company has announced plans to rebuild an Elizabethan playhouse using the set from the Academy Award-winning film "Shakespeare in Love."

The oak-timbered set, modeled on London's 16th century Rose Theatre, was donated to the British Shakespeare Company for a permanent base in northern England by Judi Dench, who won an Academy Award for playing Queen Elizabeth I in the 1998 romantic comedy.
