James Burbage built The Theatre in Shoreditch, an area just north of the City of London, in 1576. The Theatre, so-called because it was the first permanent purpose-built performance venue in England, served as a home base for Burbage's company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men. One of the performers in the group probably was a young performer from the area that is supposed to have been Burbage's hometown - William Shakespeare, of Stratford-on-Avon. Remains of The Theatre were uncovered by archaeologists from the Museum of London in 2008.
