In case you have not seen this, here is a great video of what the Theatre in Shoreditch would have looked like back in 1595.
The Theatre in Shoreditch is where Shakespeare may have had his start in London, and where he may have first performed as an actor, and where his first plays were performed.

The video is from Museum Of London Archeology which was responsible for the excavation of the site, and also of the discovery of the Curtain Theatre site in Shoreditch, in 2012.

I love the MOLA blog, it has excellent articles, which are quite fascinating on a range of issues:
I also highly recommend this excellent book about the playhouses in Shakespeare's times: Shakespeare's London Theatreland: Archeology, History and Drama.
