This is a video of the tour for the Globe Theatre in London

In 1599 the globe theater was built.It was London's first playhouse. Shakespeare's first play was here.The area was known as the Bank side on the south side of the river."Globe Theater was an early English theater in London. Most of the great English playwright William Shakespeare's plays were first presented at the Globe. The brothers Cuthbert and Richard Burbage constructed the theater in 1599 from the timbers of London's first playhouse, called The Theater. They erected the Globe in the area known as the Bank side on the south side of the River Thames in the suburb of Southwark."There is not mush to show about the design but by the shape of it on maps. In 1613, the Globe burned down.In 1613, the Globe burned down.In 1614 it was rebuilt on the same foundation. The Globe was torn down in 1644. In 1996 it was rebuilt and it officially opened in 1997."Little is known about the Globe's design except what can be learned from maps and evidence from the plays presented there. The Globe was round or polygonal on the outside and probably round on the inside. It may have held as many as 3,000 spectators. In 1613, the Globe burned down. It was rebuilt on the same foundation and reopened in 1614. The Globe was torn down in 1644. A reconstruction of the theater was completed in 1996, and it officially opened in 1997."In 1598 the Globe theater opened and that is were most of Shakespeare's plays were preformed.In 1613 it was burned down by an accident during one of Shakespeare's plays.It was soon rebuilt in 1614 then was destroyed by Puritans in 1644"London playhouse, built in 1598, where most of Shakespeare's plays were first presented. It burned in 1613, was rebuilt in 1614, and was destroyed by the Puritans in 1644. A working replica opened in 1997."In 1599 the Globe theater was built with a replica of the theater and an exhibition and education center known as the world."As a cultural institution, Shakespeare’s Globe is dedicated to the research and performance of Shakespeare’s plays, with particular attention to the public playhouse in which Shakespeare was a shareholder: the 1599 Globe Theater. With a replica of that playhouse and an exhibition and education center known throughout the world, the Shakespeare’s Globe complex introduces to the visitor audiological narratives that are charged with meaning. This article investigates the ways in which Shakespeare’s Globe “performs” its own notion of “authenticity” that is distinct from the artistic choices of the performances presented therein."The Globe theater has about 20 sides an a circular and a diameter of 105 feet.The stage was a rectangular shape about 43 feet long and 23 feet wide.It had three overhanging galleries seated for the audience.The top of the gallery had a thatched roof ,but the theater it's self had no roof.In the very front there were people called"groundings".Though people sat in the worst seats possible at the time the front though seats cost 1 cent.The groundings would through rotten food at the actors if they didn't like it."The Globe was 20-sided and nearly cylindrical, with a diameter of around 105 feet. A large rectangular stage in the center of its amphitheater measured 43 by 23 feet. Three overhanging tiered galleries seated the audience. The top gallery had a thatched roof, but the rest of the theater was open to the elements. The least expensive area in the theater surrounded the stage on three sides and was for standing room only. Here was where the "groundings," as. They were called, watched the plays."they had pillars to help hold up the stage.The northwest and southwest were facing each other during the Winter's Tale matinee.the original performances were always in the afternoon."Was the canopy over the Globe stage held up by pillars? Yes, very likely, but we do not know: it may have been cantilevered, but that would have depended on how deep the stage was, and we don't know that either. And where was the stage? This one is in the northwest, facing southeast, with the result that, during the Winter's Tale matinee, the sun shone in my eyes. The original Globe performances were always in the afternoon: would Shakespeare and his colleagues have wanted to have their audiences blinded by the sun?"The English did nothing to stop the site of the globe theater it was few hundred feet."Again, we don't know, nor are we likely to: English Heritage is doing nothing to stop the development that is going on over the site of the actual Globe a few hundred feet away. It will not even allow keyhole archaeology that could still, just, be done. Why? But that is another sad and scandalous story."
