Theater claims it has the only surviving stage where Shakespeare may have performed

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel.

A theater in Norfolk, England, claims they have found the only surviving stage where Shakespeare once performed. The centuries-old floorboards were discovered during recent renovations hidden under a replacement floor. Also, the theater, St. George's Guildhall, says it has old documents suggesting the playwright was onstage there. Don't worry if you can't visit the site to see the discovery yourself because, as the bard once wrote, all the world's a stage.
