The best Shakespearean performances in the world. We saw Troilus and Cressida, considered by many to be one of the "failed" plays. But if that was what this company can do with one of the less successful Bard plays, we tremble to think how well done "Hamlet" would be here.

Makes the plays come alive like no other theatre. Demonstrates the importance of the communal aspect of the experience. It's far less pretentious and stifling than most theatres.

Take in some of London's best theater in a replica of the Globe for only £5 (standing). One of the city's best bargains!

Everyone should see a play here at least once, just for the unique experience. Although, if you'll be standing in the middle like I did, maybe make sure you won't be seeing Shakespeare's second longest play (Coriolanus)! Terrific atmosphere and performance, though.

If you watch the film "Shakespeare in Love," it gives you chills to see the Globe Theater. It suddenly hits you that Shakespeare's plays were written to be performed in his own time and that the great author played some of the roles himself.

Saw an absolutely fantastic production of The Tempest here. It was definitely Shakespeare done right. No fancy-schmancy special effects (the sinking ship was a model ship that they passed throughout the crowd and made storm noises with a drum and a saw), but it was so real and very moving at times. Very happy I paid for a seat and cushion as I wasn't exhausted after 3 hours, but rather energized.
Great location, quality productions and a fantastic chance to see both well-known and up-and-coming actors sharing the same stage.

If you are in London when the Globe is offering plays (from May to late September) do not pass up the opportunity to attend. Nothing beats watching Shakespeare performed by actors who know what they are doing. And the authentic setting makes the experience memorable.Recommended for:Local Culture
