Globe Theatre

Globe Theatre
   Close to the site where Shakespeare’s Globe playhouse once stood, a modern replica of the theatre has been erected, the first building with a thatched roof to be built in London since the Great Fire of 1666. The project, initiated by the late Sam Wanamaker to establish a ‘living monument’ to the Bard and recreate the authentic open-air performance dynamics of his plays, has been over twenty-five years in the making and has brought together scholars, educators, theatre professionals and the heritage industry. Surrounded by taller modern buildings the new Globe is less conspicuous than the original, but as a historical reconstruction, using traditional building materials and craftsmanship, it is still impressive. The replica may cause the tourist map of London to be redrawn.
