The Plays

William "Money" Shakespeare

William Shakespeare became very rich off of his plays and other works. The cost of a ticket to see a play was five to eleven euros each (10 Euros back then is 2,120 now). If a show did extremely well he could even receive bonuses as well. He apparently spent his money on property in London and Stratford, England.
