Book(s) For an Upcoming Paper

Since I may have only mentioned this on Facebook and Twitter, quick update: I'm taking a summer course prior to attending SUNY Oswego full-time in the fall. The course is called Western Theatre: Edification or Entertainment?

For an upcoming paper I need to write a first-person account of a Londoner in late 16th or early 17th century attending one of Shakespeare's plays at the Globe. The professor doesn't want a synopsis of the play, but he does want information on the staging thereof. He also wants detail on where I live, how I get to the theatre, what it's like, concessions, and so on. Last but not least, we need three sources, not including the textbooks.

Even though the paper is a ways in the future, I'd like to get started in research. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to recommend media, especially books, which give a good historical perspective of life in that time period. The professor pointed us to a site which is a virtual tour of the Globe theatre, so I'm more interested in the other aspects of life at that time. Any and all recommendations are welcome and will be greatly appreciated.

Now if only I could use studentbane's well-researched Cthulu meets Victorian England RPG as a source...
