seating above the stage for the welathy audiance
seating around the walls for the middle class audience

This is so the wealthy and middle class people can be sheltered and seated during shows and the poor audience stands and has to sometimes deal with the bad weather while watching.
The reason for The Globe Theater's shape and name come from the quote "Totus mundus agit histrionem" which is Latin for "The whole world is a playhouse". This was crested above the main entrance of the theater.
