Minack, the Coolest Theater in the World

Open air theaters are usually associated with the cultures of ancient Rome and Greece but the tradition is still going strong in the windswept but beautiful landscape of Cornwall in the United Kingdom. Although it resembles an ancient artifact, the Minack Theater is less than a hundred years old! It is made of solid stone and perched directly over the sea, so it will probably see Shakespearean productions for centuries to come.

The Cornwall coast? Ah, yes -- if you look closely, you can see the Major General's Daughters climbing over the rocks, chased by the Pirates of Penzance themselves, accompanied by a Doctor of Divinity who is Located in this Vicinity...

I to saw Midsummers night dream there, when the sun went down it got very cold (a good tip take something insulation to sit on)but bats flew round the lights catching summer moths and fishing boats showing thier lights sailed past... good if you get bored easily.
