Globe Theatre interior.

Shakespeare's Globe is a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse in the London Borough of Southwark, on the south bank of the River Thames that was originally built in 1599, destroyed by fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614, and then demolished in 1644.

The modern reconstruction is an academic approximation based on available evidence of the 1599 and 1614 buildings. it is considered quite realistic, though somewhat smaller, seating only 1400 spectators compared to the original theatre’s 3000. It was founded by the actor and director Sam Wanamaker, built about 230 metres (750 ft) from the site of the original theatre and opened to the public in 1997, with a production of Henry V.


Doc Tanner visited the Globe Theatre with Jak, and watched a twisted version of Romeo and Juliet. Shortly afterwards they ended up in a fight with Long Johnson. (Bitter Fruit)
