Construction:

Quote #1: The stage was surrounded by several levels of seating. In 1613, the Globe burned down. It was rebuilt on the same foundation and reopened in 1614.

Commentary: Using this quote i noticed that the Globe Theater was loved and preserved by many so the designers decided to just rebuild it in the same spot it was originally to give the audience a science of what it was like to watch plays back then.

Quote #2: The Globe was shut down in 1642 and torn down in 1644. A reconstruction of the theater was completed 200 yards (183 meters) from the original site in 1996, and it officially opened in 1997.

Commentary: This quote shows the reader that yes they may have moved and yes it may have been shut down. But, Someone cared enough about Shakespeare's past to rebuild it and show some of his original plays right there.
