A visit to the theatre in Shakespeare's time was indeed a highly sensory experience, so the right answer is the A: Theater was a feast for the imagination and for the senses; there were smells, sights, and sounds everywhere. Theatre was pleasant and very entertaining, everybody could afford it (although those who paid the cheapest tickets had to watch the performance standing on their feet!), and rather than dangerous or dirty it was a very widespread and popular and leisure activity. At the back of the stage there were musicians that played songs and made sound effects. The audience also made a lot of noise - they sang, they interrupted the play with comments and questions, they clapped, and they cheered, among other things. Smells came from the food that street sellers sold to the audience, but also from sweaty spectators and from the open buckets that people used as toilets. Lastly, there were many sights: the waves of people arriving at the theatre (thousands of people went to the theatre every week during spring and summer), the decorated stage, the actors (all men, performing male and female roles), the merchants, servants, and other people that made up the audience, and so on.
