Transcript of Shakespeare's Globe

The Stage Costumes It was built in 1599 by Shakespeare's playing company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men
It was situated on the South bank of the river Thames in Southwark. Shakespeare's G L O B E totus mundus agit histrionem The Globe was built using timber from an earlier theatre, The Theatre, which had been built by Richard Burbage's father, James Burbage On 29 June 1613 the Globe Theatre went up in flames during a performance of Henry VIII. A theatrical cannon, set off during the performance, misfired, igniting the wooden beams and thatching. Like all the other theatres in London, the Globe was closed down by the Puritans in 1642. Elizabethan plays did not rely on scenery to indicaste the setting of the play but depended rather on the language/dialogue although it lacked in scenery various props were used for example in Richard III two tents were used, one at each end of the stage. such as thrones, swords, banners, rocks, trees, tables and beds "because all the world plays the actor"
The outer stage projected from the back stage wall called the ' Frons Scenae ' into the the central yard or pit. There were no side or front curtains - from this are of the stage everything was visible

The inner stage - was a recess at the back of the outer stage. This back part of the stage was used by actors who were not directly involved in the immediate action of the play Costumes were fabulous - sumptuous materials, vivid colors and extremely costly. The costumes did not always reflect the correct period of the Play. The Globe actors generally wore the dress of their own time. Some were specifically made for the actors and some were donated by rich patrons. Shakespeare's G L O B E Shakespeare's Globe is a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse in the London Borough of Southwark, on the south bank of the River Thames that was destroyed by fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614, and then demolished in 1644. The modern reconstruction is an academic approximation based on available evidence of the 1599 and 1614 buildings. It was founded by the actor and director Sam Wanamaker and built about 230 metres (750 ft) from the site of the original theatre and opened to the public in 1997, The New Globe from the outside Inside The New Globe Shakespeare's Globe under construction Costumes on display at the globe museum Presentation by: M A R K D A L A C A T Wenceslas Harrows' Long View of London from Bankside, 1614 Movie Clip: Shakespeare in Love (video from youtube) Trailer: The Globe's 2009 production of Romeo and Juliet (video from youtube) Trailer: The Globe's production of As You Like It (video from youtube)
