Shakespeare's work with the Globe!
Shakespeare's influence

Shakespeare’s influence:

Quote:Worthen was very inspired by Shakespeare that he had to pull apart his work and ask himself "Why Shakespeare would write his stories the way he does". Shakespeare is recreated in historical performance, exemplified by the Globe Theatre on Bankside; by international and intercultural performance; by film; and by the appearance of Shakespeare on the Internet. The book includes detailed discussions of recent film and stage productions, and sets Shakespeare performance alongside other works of contemporary drama and theatre.

Commentary:Shakespeare still inspires many to question his work. Shakespeare and the force of Modern Performance was written to try and figure out the essential question what is the relationship between the dramatic text and the meanings of performances?

So in many ways Shakespeare is still influencing through the work he left behind. Shakespeare was apart of the theater lifestyle he was a great playwright and actor.
