It's hard to say exactly what people paid to see a work of Shakespeare in Elizabethean England.
In most works, reference is made to admission price being "a coin". However, during the time coins were minted in demonimations from a 1/4 pence to a guinea.
Suffice to say, most people at the time were not earning very much, so the admission price may have been equal to about a penny.
