The Globe Theatre was an amazing success.
There was money to be made from this new and exciting form
of entertainment. The London audience clamoured for more and
more new plays. The plays written by Elizabethan Playwrights, such as
William Shakespeare, were in great demand. Great actors like Richard Burbage, Will Kempe and Edward Alleyn became the Superstars of the
Elizabethan era and the audiences of the theatres, including the Globe. A
day out at the theater was a real event - the design of the theater was
magnificent, based on the design of the old Roman Amphitheatres. Find out
more about the history, design, construction, audience, plays, actors and
playwrights who made the Globe Theater the most exciting place to visit in
London during the Elizabethan era.
