Shakespeare's Globe Theater is a "must see" attraction. It is a very unique place. It combines The Globe Theatre Company, that holds open-air performances, and Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition, which provides historical information about the theater. We were only able to visit the exhibition which provided an engaging and informed introduction to the theater of Shakespeare's time, and the London in which he lived and worked. The guide will tell you about the construction of the building that was based closely on historical documents that describe the Globe of Shakespeare's time. You will also learn about the roles of actors, musicians, and audience members in this unique theater. The Exhibition and guided tour of the theater are open daily.
Performances are held only from May to September. Check the website for a schedule of performances at Shakespeare's-globe.org.
My dream is to actually see a performance at this theater. We'll have to schedule our next trip during the theater season!
