Ask a question

  • JP1964 – “Some things are so obviously a great idea that you wonder why no one thought to do them before. The globe theatre is one such thing. The only amazing thing is that it was such a struggle for the late, great sam wannamaker to get permission to build it. Shakespeare is such a part of the fabric of national life, who couldn't resist a visit? This is a theatre like no other. The only other open air theatre that I have been to is the one in regents park, but this one is so much better because of the seats rising around you on all sides. It feels like you are indoors. And the standing room is akin to being at a football stadium beside the pitch. You can park yourself literally at the feet of the actors. I definitely recommend a place in the standing area rather than the seats. I have done both, and there is a better atmosphere down below. Partly because the actors address the standing crowd when they speak, which makes hearing the lines a lot easier (shakespeare is hard enough to follow as it is, but when you miss some words it is doubly so!)”
  •  Guest – “Everybody should go and enjoy a play at the globe at least once, even if you don't like shakespeare. I must admit that half the play passed me by, because shakespeare is hard to follow even when I’m sitting in a nice armchair at home, and if I didn't already know that plot then I probably would have struggled to follow what was going on. But it is such a wonderful place to watch a play. The audience creates bags of atmosphere, and it is a lot of fun. You feel like a little community down there below the stage. Try it!”

> Craig’s review of Globe Theatre – “I'm sitting in the Globe Theatre waiting for Julius Caesar to start -- that's the only play I could get tickets for because I left it a bit late. The place is packed out and all we are doing is watch them assemble the set. The stage is very close to the seats and rises up three stories. It's got three floors of balconied seats wrapped around the whole thing in a circl… continued”
