Do You Recognize this Gentleman?

He's William Shakespeare, the greatest playwright of all! I'm next to his bust, a sculpture of him, at the Globe Theater in London, England, on the Thames River. In Will's day, the Lord Mayor of London disliked the whole theater scene so much that he made the playhouses stay on the south side of the river away from the rest of the town on the north side of the Thames. Luckily, Queen Elizabeth the First liked the theaters otherwise they might have been shut down completely.
