Quote:

"Globe Theatre was an early open air English Theatre in London. In 1613, the Globe burned down. It was rebuilt on the same foundation and reopened in 1614. The Globe was shut down in 1642 and torn down in 1644" (Seidel 2)

Paraphrase:

They had some trouble building the Globe Theatre but besides it being burned down they were successful.A reconstruction of the theater was completed 200 yards from the original site in 1996, and it officially opened in 1997.

"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.The Globe was round or polygonal on the outside and probably round on the inside" ( Adams 3).

Paraphrase:

The theatre had 3 levels, if you were sitting on the bottom level you were called groundlings since you sat on the floor.

Quote:

"The actors would erect a temporary platform stage at one end of the yard and play to an audience that stood around the stage or sat in the tiers of balconies that surrounded the courtyard"(Anderson 7).

Paraphrase:

Before the Theatre was burned down it didn't have three stories, they would act in the courtyards of inns. Usually, the passage ways that people made would lead them into various rooms of the inn

Quote:

"The theater may have held as many as 3,000 spectators" (Seidel 4)

Paraphrase:

Including groundlings which only payed one cent to get into the first level. While there was two other levels, the top one being the one with the best view.

Quote:

"Groundlings; the eight hundred or more people who stood shoulder to shoulder around the stage for the price of a penny " (Anderson 11).

Paraphrase:

Included in the 3,000 people who fit in the theatre. These people would pay the least amount of price for having the worst view which was also the lowest level.

Quote:

"The part of the stage that projected into the yard grew narrower, and the small curtained inner stage grew larger" (Anderson 6)

Paraphrase:

Those two parts of the stage develop a proscenium, this seperates the inner stage from the audience. It makes it seem so that the audience have a feeling of the stage as being a window

Quote:

"Costumes were often Elaborate, and the stage might have been hung by colorful banners and trappings" (Anderson 4)

Paraphrase:

The costumes the actors had to wear were based on the story and the era of the story. Ladies usually had to wear dresses and men usually wore ties and a button up shirt which was used for Romeo and Juliet.

Quote:

"Under the stage at the back was a "tiring house" which was used as a storage for costumes and props" (Seidel 7)

Paraphrase:

The actors occasionally changed in there and that was also where the actors would wait before they entered the stage.
