Dear reader, have you ever wanted to watch a Shakespeare play the way Shakespeare envisioned? Shakespeare wrote his plays with the intention of it being staged at the Globe Theatre-- a Thrust Stage in a large circular yard surronded by 3 storeys of steep seating. Different from today's typical theatres. Shakespeare's Globe pays homage to the Elizabethan era of plays and showcases The Bard's plays the way they were originally staged. Shakespeare's Globe is a reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre that was built by William Shakespeare's company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men in 1599. It was in the Globe Theatre where Shakespeare wrote and staged many of his plays including Othello, Macbeth, King Lear and Hamlet. Unfortunately, this original Globe Theatre burned down in 1613, rubuilt in 1614, and demolished in 1644. Shakespeare's Globe, founded by actor and director, Sam Wanamaker in 1997 is an authentic and accurate replica of the original theatrical home of Shakespeare.
