William Shakespeare is arguably the most renowned and respected playwright in the world. He lived and spent most of his life in London, the city where he carved his career. This is one reason London is home to his work in various forms, be it adaptations or straight plays. Shakespeare's shows are hugely popular in the city. Every theatre in London hosts his work, and all you need are a couple of Shakespeare tickets to catch them live on stage.
People highly regard Shakespeare's work due to its intricate and dramatic storylines. He wrote much more plays than others in his time. Shakespeare's variety of comedies and tragedies play a big role in attracting different kinds of audiences. A new generation of actors continues to perform Shakespeare's plays. The popularity his shows garnered never wavered, and they still make a big impression today.
As the years pass by, Shakespeare's plays feel different. Each time, a different set of actors give the productions their own twist using their skills and personalities. Shakespeare tickets also sell for the compelling nature of his work. For example, some of his work was used in Soviet Russia for political reasons.
