The theatres were closed in 1642, not 1649. The present article only says that the theatres were closed during the interregnum. A reader would have to assume they closed in 1649, though they were closed for seven more years than that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eawonder (talk • contribs) 19:28, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Just a note: Melodrama has been left out, and although it's drama not theatre, the tradition of the actor manager and its role in shaping and developing drama needs to be mentioned. There's also the independent theatre movement, and, as ssilvers said, the 20th century is almost empty at the moment. DionysosProteus (talk) 19:56, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
