The Elizabethan Theatre - The Globe Theatre
William Shakespeare. Elizabethan London and the Globe Theatre. Theatres were new - the very first theatre in Elizabethan London was introduced by an Elizabethan entrepreneur called James Burbage and was aptly called 'The Theatre'. The Globe was built from the timbers of the 'Theatre' - William Shakespeare and his company of actors helped with the construction.

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.
