Nuts and Bolts: The Globe theatre

The Globe Theatre was built in 1576 just outside of London, England by James Burbage. After that, it would have to be rebuilt two times. This Theatre's main purpose was to display William Shakespeare's shows.

The original structure of The Globe Theatre was very unique. It is a multi-sided structure with a central uncovered "yard" surrounded by three tiers of covered seating. At the end of the yard was a bare, raised, stage. The whole structure was built almost entirely out of timber. It had a thatched roof.
