Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre: modern piece of literary history
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is a world-renowned performing arts venue, which has also become a cultural and historical attraction and education hub. Situated in the London Borough of Southwark, on the River Thames, the theatre celebrates iconic playwright Shakespeare and his transformative impact on the literary world with radical theatrical experiment. The theatre was built in 1599 by Shakespeare’s playing company on land then owned by Thomas Brend. A fire destroyed the theatre in 1613, and a second Globe Theatre was built in its place by1614 but closed in 1642 by an issued Ordinance. A modern reconstruction of the Globe, named Shakespeare’s Globe, opened in1997 on the site as we know it today. The theatre is based on available evidence about the previous buildings and is considered quite true to the original but conforming to modern safety requirements.
