The Whitehall Theatre
The Whitehall theatre was the elite of all Elizabethan theatres. The building was designed by Indigo Jones who would later design the cockpit theatre. Queen Elizabeth I was a great patron of Theatre and she enjoyed watching the latest plays of the era. The Whitehall Theatre was sumptuous and it was here in the comfort and warmth of this very special theater that the Queen and her courtiers would command the acting troupes to perform the great plays of the era. The Paul's Boys (groups of young choristers from St. Paul's Cathedral, who also performed plays) were known to be a particular favourite of Queen Elizabeth and played at the Whitehall Theatre.
