Verified answer

Well, stage plays take a long time to write and produce, just like movies, so for one thing, they provided variety. Another reason they were popular initially was the sheer newness factor. People were fascinated to see the technology where you could actually see moving pictures. Also, stage plays are limited to a certain region, or perhaps a tour, whereas movies can be copied and distributed widely. A smaller area that doesn't have a live theatre program would love to see movies rather than having to travel to a larger city where they were putting on a play.

How has acting changed since the 16th century?

I do not know about the first part of the 16th century, but Shakespeare wrote plays at the end of this century and his plays are still performed so the theater has not changed all that much. There were more soliloquys and asides then than there are today. Lighting is better and women appear on the stage nowadays. Of course, there was no TV and no movies and acting in movies or TV is quite different that the stage, but that is not what you asked about.

Why aren't good Broadway plays ever shown on television after they have closed?

It is very difficult to bring the stage to the screen. Working with TV and movies are nothing like working in plays. I mean, I saw Rent on Broadway and loved it. The movie? It wasn't great at all.
