Shakespeare’s plays were first performed at London’s Globe theater several centuries ago. It was lovingly re-built near the original location in 1997, and the new venue is covered but open to the elements, so be sure to bring a raincoat. There are some seats, but for a true Shakespearean experience, purchase a “groundling ticket” and stand the whole show.
