  • The Globe was built buy the acting company in
    which Shakespeare owned a stake.
  • This is why it is sometimes now referred to as
    the Shakespearean Globe.

    down when the Puritans, led by Oliver Cromwell,
    tore down all the playhouses.
  • A reconstruction of The Globe was built when the
    site of the Old Globe Theater was rediscovered in
    the 20th century.

    the Globe.

    the ground in front of the stage.
  • Better seating cost a few pennies more.
  • Plays were performed in the afternoon, since
    there was no artificial lighting.
