The Globe Theater Jeremy Desrochers Period 4

The Stage of the Globe Theater

This is where my evidence is at.

"Globe Theater was an early open-air English theater in London." Most of the great English playwright William Shakespeare's plays were first presented at the Globe.

"Public theaters, like the Theater or the Globe, were large wooden structures that were roughly circular. The galleries along the sides were covered, but most of the structure, including the large raised stage which projected about halfway into the theater, was unroofed." Theaters including the Globe have wooden structures.

"In 1613, the Globe burned down. It was rebuilt on the same foundation and reopened in 1614. reconstruction of the theater was completed 200 yards (183 meters) from the original site in 1996, and it officially opened in 1997." The Globe Theater was once destroyed in 1613 and opened in 1641 then moved 200 yards away from the original site in 1996 and opened in 1997.

Shakespeare began writing for the stage at a time when English theater was entering an exciting new era. Playwrights were experimenting with new forms, incorporating elements of classical (ancient Greek and Roman) and Renaissance literature into their work."Shakespeare wrote plays specifically for the Globe Theater.

"The Globe was round or polygonal on the outside and probably round on the inside. The theater may have held as many as 3,000 spectators. Its stage occupied the open-air space, with a pit in front for standing viewers."The Globe Theater was able to hold around 3000 viewers and had no roof.

" Shakespeare owned a modest percentage of the theater and its operations." Shakespeare owned some of the Globe Theater."

"In 1599 the Lord Chamberlain's Men built the Globe Theater on the south bank of the Thames River." The Globe Theater was built in 1599 by Lord Chamberlain's men.

"The first definite references to Shakespeare in the London theater date from 1592, when the playwright was twenty-eight." Shakespeare became known in 1592

"By 1592, however, he was known in London; playwright and critic Robert Green (c. 1560–1592) wrote a jealous attack that year dismissing him as an upstart. This suggests that Shakespeare had already begun to establish a literary reputation." Robert Green started Shakespeare career.

"Many of Shakespeare's greatest plays were written in the first ten years of the company's residence at the Globe, and they were first performed there. Examples include the tragedies Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello, and King Lear; and the comedies Twelfth Night, All's Well That Ends Well, and Measure for Measure." Shakespeare's best plays were held at the Globe Theater.

The Globe Theater was made very famous by Shakespeare and made Shakespeare more famous than before. The Globe is located in London near the Thames River. It was built by Lord Chamberlain. Shakespeare owned some of the theater. He also played most of his biggest plays in them such as one of the most famous play's in the world was Romeo and Juliet that was played in the globe.
