    The Shakespeare Company, 1594-1642 by Andrew Gurr( Book )
    6 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 821 libraries worldwide
    This is the first complete history of the theatre company, created in 1594, which in 1603 became the King's Men. Shakespeare was at the heart of the team of players, who with their successors ran an operation that lasted until the theatres closed in 1642. During these forty-eight years they staged all of Shakespeare's plays, a number of Ben Jonson's, those of Thomas Middleton and John Webster, and almost all of the Beaumont and Fletcher canon. Andrew Gurr provides a comprehensive history of the company's activities. A chapter on their finances explains the unique management system they adopted and two chapters study the fashions in their repertory and the complex relationship with their royal patrons. The six appendixes identify the 98 players who worked in the company, the 167 plays they are known to have owned and performed, as well as the key documents from the company's history.

    3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
    "This book is a study of the Chamberlain's/King's Men as a business. It investigates the economic workings of the company: the conditions under which they operated, their expenses and income, and the ways in which they adapted to fit changing circumstances. Each chapter focuses on a different moment in the company's history, and consists of "economic readings," exploring texts by Shakespeare and other authors through an economic lens, as the property of the company and through the circumstances in which they were written."--Jacket

    The political atmosphere in the London of 1601 is fraught with conspiracy and treason, as the aging, childless Queen Elizabeth nears the end of her long reign with no direct heir to the British crown. While the Queen's former favorite, the Earl of Essex, plots to protect her throne, his enemies, believing he plans to seize the royal office for himself, hatch counterplots. Intrigue is rife, rebellion is afoot. The Chamberlain's Men, meanwhile, at the request of one of Essex's supporters, are staging William Shakespeare's Richard II, which recounts a monarch's murder, and Nick Revill finds himself not only performing in a play but also acting as a spy for the government. When some of his closest companions in the cast begin dying in bizarre and unfortunate ways Nick realizes it will soon be curtains for himself unless he can finger the culprit in the company and figure out who is the mastermind behind the Essex rebellion

    Country clowns to city wits : Kempe, Armin, and the development of Shakespeare's fools by Bonnie Colleen Morrison( Archival Material )
    1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
    "Scholars have long argued that Lord Chamberlain's Men sharer and leading clown Will Kempe was Replaced by Robert Armin around 1600, and that there was no overlap between Kempe's departure and Armin's arrival. However, reexamining existing evidence shows that there is a possibility that both men worked for the company at the same time. This thesis examines Kempe's and Armin's possible coexistence as members of the Lord Chamberlain's Men through the lens of one of the plays Shakespeare wrote during this transitionary period, Hamlet, and argues that this play, in particular, indicates that Shakespeare, at least, was writing for a future when two different types of clowns could exist in the same play (and the same company)."--Abstract
