The Globe Theater By, Diannielle Stroud

The globe theatre is a uniquely STRUCTURED THEATER, where shakespeare went during his daily life, and also went through a time of rebirth after an incident.

Globe Theatre Structure:

Quote:

"You can see history re-created as the Globe Theatre rises again to its original splendour. Extensive research has gone into ensuring that the modern incarnation of The Shakespeare Globe faithfully reproduces the original" (Ruggles1).

Commentary:

The quote is saying how when the reconstructed the Glove after its burning, they wanted to be as similar to the original as possible.

Quote:

"Shakespeare was one of six shareholders who signed the lease for the new site in 1599" (Lander 35).

Commentary:

This quote shows how Shakespeare really wanted the Globe theatre and later on it soon became a contribution to his everyday lifestyle.

Quote:

"Shakespeare called his theater :wooden O:It was a large, round (or polygonal) building, three stories high, with a large platform stage that projected from one end into a yard open to the sky"(Anderson 4).

Commentary:

This quote shows how Shakespeare used to call the Globe the "wooden O' because of it's wooden structure, possibly in the future it was soon renamed as the Globe or they used both names.

The groundlings,those eight hundred or more people who stood shoulder to shoulder around the stage for the price of a penny..." (Anderson 779).

Commentary:

Since there were several stories to the wooden O/ globe, the groundlings were the lowest because it was the largest and widest are which is on the ground. Basically since they bottom ground barely cost anything, there would be more people getting those spots. And since they are on the ground they earned the name "groundlings".

Shakespeare's life in the theater:

"He had a theater that needed plays, actors who needed parts , and a family that needed to be fed" (Anderson 777)

Commentary:

This quote shows how although it didn't seem like it Shakespeare spent a lot of time at the theater to help people with jobs, and himself providing for his family.

"Most of the great English playwright William Shakespeare's plays were first presented at the Globe" (Seidel 1).

Commentary:

When Shakespeare first started to present his plays, it was in the Globe Theatre. The Globe soon became very popular because of this.

"Shakespeare was one of six shareholders who signed the lease for the new site in 1599" (Lander 35).

Commentary:

This quote shows how Shakespeare really wanted the Globe theatre and later on it soon became a contribution to his everyday lifestyle.

Rebirth of the Globe theatre

"After an absence of nearly 400 years, Shakespeare's Globe theater rises again on the South Bank of the Thames River, 200 yards from its original 1599 site. The marathon campaign to resurrect the "Wooden O"--as Shakespeare called it in Henry V--has been an epic adventure of dreams and disasters, fundraising nightmares, lawsuits and nitpicky scholarly debate"(Covington 3).

Commentary:

After a long period of time the Globe Theater is reborn except not in its original area. The burning of the 1599 site came from a bad show called Henry V- causing many different responses.

"On Thursday, 12th June, Shakespeare's Globe will officially celebrate its opening in the company of Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Patron of the Shakespeare Globe Trust" (British Heritage 1),

Commentary:

This quote shows how the Globe Theatre was so important that even Royalty celebrated the opening of the new Globe.

"You can see history re-created as the Globe Theatre rises again to its original splendour. Extensive research has gone into ensuring that the modern incarnation of The Shakespeare Globe faithfully reproduces the original" (Ruggles1).

Commentary:

The quote is saying how when the reconstructed the Glove after its burning, they wanted to be as similar to the original as possible.
