All About The Globe

Erected in 1599, The Globe was London’s first theater built by and for actors. As one of seven shareholders in the company that commissioned it (not to mention the company’s chief playwright), Shakespeare probably had some say in the theater’s design. He wrote many of his plays, from Julius Caesar on, with this venue in mind. Roll your cursor over different parts to read more about the theater’s features and how they influenced writing, performing, and experiencing Shakespeare’s plays.
