We all know Shakespeare. The "thees and thous," the Romeos, the Juliets. But the one-man show Shakespeare's Keeper shows us a new side of the Bard. The award-winning play centers on life in the era of Shakespeare's famous Globe Theatre. Told from the perspective of a sometimes caustic stage hand, whose story withholds little, the play gives us a glimpse of an acting company during one of the greatest eras of the theater, forced to watch its work literally go up in flames. Shakespeare's Keeper shows at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the Arts Centre Theatre, 1028 15th Place in downtown Plano. Admission is $17 to $37.
