EVER WONDERED...Box Office

Feb. 17, 2018

Some writers have erroneously attributed the derivation of the term box office to the use of a money box at London's Globe Theatre in Shakespeare's time, into which theatregoers deposited coins to pay for seeing a play. In fact, the term box office did not originate until several centuries later, when it was used to refer to an office at which theatregoers could reserve an enclosed area of seating (box) for viewing stage.
