The Globe Theatre Sep 17, 2011
I went in March, so there wasn't any plays going on. Their plays coincide with the high tourism season, Summer. Since I came during low season, I got a one on one personal tour, how awesome was that! While I was there a class of US students were practicing; I think they were from Syracuse University or Duke? I forgot.

Anyway, I enjoyed myself. I think it was better because I was the only one there. I love being treated "special".

Just amazing Jul 17, 2011
The Shakespeare Globe Theatre in London is just amazing. I was there in spring, the atmosphere and the play were absolutly brilliant. The theatre is a faithful reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre which was built in 1599. Unbelievable that about 400 years ago, Shakespeare´s plays were premiered there.

It was a great play, great actors, great atmosphere and of course a lot of Shakespeare.

There is also a Shakespeare store where you can buy everything imaginable about Shakespeare and souvenirs.

Guided threatre tours are possible until 5 pm.

Buy your tickets in advance, its always sold out. And get there in time, that you can enjoy the food and drinks in the front of the theatre and to enjoy the overall atmosphere.

If you are not an English native speaker and you`re not understanding everything, it doesn´t matter, it´s still worth to see. Buy & Read the play before and you will get it.

Its an Openair theatre, what makes the atmosphere even more fascinating. Especially when the sun is shining.

The standing room is without a roof, umbrellas are not allowed, only the seats (wooden benches) are dry in case of rain.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and exhibition Dec 15, 2010
A reproduction of the original theatre using traditional methods of construction.Built close to the site of the original on the South Bank of the Thames next to the Millenium footbridge and close to the Tate Modern.It has an attached visitors centre and book shop. If you don't fancy watching one of the productions a tour of the theatre is still well worth doing.

The Globe is a reconstruction of the Elizabethean threatre were many of Shakespeare's plays were performed.Overlooking theThames, just steps from the Millenium Bridge, the site offers a true theatrical experience under the stars, as part of the structure is open to the elements.The best seats in the house can be yours for the sum of £5 if you are willing to stand for the performance.Our favorite spot was leaning right against the stage! The actors put on a great show almost leading one to believe they are speaking everyday English. Shows only run in the summer but be sure to dress warmly as it can be cool.
So close you can feel the spit
