It's a reconstruction of the globe theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse destroyed by fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614 and finally demolish in 1644.

When we decided to stay a few days in London, we wanted to visit this theatre, but rather than just visiting, we have chosen to book tickets for a play.

We saw a performance of "Dr Faustus" and we were delighted, the actors were excellents and most played 2 or 3 roles, the staging was without dead-time and with some imagination one can imagine being in the past when shakespeare was playing .

standing in front of the stage cost 5 pounds
seats are more expensive and don't forget the cushion (1 pound)

Address: 21 New Globe Walk Bankside London SE1 9DT.
