Germany & Spain
The most fabulous things bout the plays from Early Modern Spain was the specific costuming. It is most obvious that you were watching a play that was Spanish or written by a Spanish writer because of the detail and uniqueness of the costuming. Costuming was a big part of theater during this time period. The actors wanted to 'look the part' when performing in front of their audience. In fact, they even incorporated many of there stage directions into the movement. There capes, swords, and hats never went unnoticed and they enhanced the story as well as the actors.
