Complete List of Productions?[edit]

Untitled[edit]

how about including a list of plays performed at the Globe? Start contributing!? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.103.168.21 (talk) 18:53, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Only notable productions should appear in the article. If you want to know the modern Globe's productions perhaps look at their website. I would assume most of it would consist of the main cannon of Will's scribbles; with the occasional apocrypha and Ben Johnson. Kbthompson (talk) 19:11, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

No it's not on their website. Please could a notable productions list be started, linking perhaps to complete list on a separate page. It is of interest. Under Mark Rylance many exceptionally rarely aired plays by Shsp's colleagues were produced. Under the new Dromgoole leadership it seems to be Shsp only (+ around 3 plays from other eras, mainly contemporary) per summer season. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.82.90.227 (talk) 19:14, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

==ok it is on their website (now?) though it doesn't detail all the one-off or short run performances ..

See; again long lists of plays here will probably be removed as non-notable. Any added should be backed up with citations (try Guardian, Independent, Times, Telegraph) for the notability of the production - or an individual's performance. They keep the information, and keep it up to date, there's no point in replicating it here. HTH Kbthompson (talk) 19:32, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
I've added a direct link to the external links - navigation through the website is not obvious. Kbthompson (talk) 19:37, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Separation of Articles[edit]

After much thought I have split the articles of the Globe Theatre and the nearby modern reproduction into two; this is on the basis that they are very different creations and that The Globe, as the most important Early Modern London Theatre needs its own article.

Hope this meets with approval --John Price (talk) 09:42, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

To do:

  1. London theatres navigation box of modern theatres currently points to an Elizabethan theatre
  2. wikify lead
  3. categories
  4. interwiki
  5. name - possibly should be Shakespeare's Globe Theatre or New Globe Theatre - if I remember correctly, Shakespeare's Globe is a public house!

Otherwise, makes sense to split the two, although generally where there's a history of 'playing on the same site', we've tried to keep them together. cheers Kbthompson (talk) 10:53, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for comments. 'Shakespeare's Globe' is the correct full name of the theatre; I have never heard of the pub but it is unimportant relative to the theatre.

Re final comment, it isn't on the same site of the original theatre; it's just fairly close. And given the gap of over 350 years between performances, any argument of continuity does not apply.

Infobox[edit]

Should be {{Infobox theatre}}, not building. cheers Kbthompson (talk) 11:04, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Can we add in there , that people could buy bricks and have there name engraved in the bricks and they were used in the building of the globe —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.144.18.1 (talk) 12:42, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
I've changed the infobox for the theatre infobox.KlickingKarl (talk) 15:51, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Sam Wanamaker[edit]

The man most responsible for this creation sure does get short shift in the article, a passing reference not even in the lead paragraph. Damn, even in death seems the Brits don't want to give him respect (I was in London when he first started talking about this and remember how the press laughed at him) 24.24.211.239 (talk) 07:12, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

User:24.24.211.239 is making a valid point, but making it badly. Is there any justification for saying that brits don't give Wanamaker respect because the article covers his contribution inadequately? WP:SOFIXIT, rather than complain about it. --Old Moonraker (talk) 08:05, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks to John Price (talk) for the improvement. --Old Moonraker (talk) 22:50, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Can we add in there , that people could buy bricks and have there name engraved in the bricks and they were used in the building of the globe

Other replicas[edit]

Is the Festival Theatre of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival close enough in design to include as a replica?Goldnpuppy (talk) 15:38, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

An elaborate replica in the Borghese Gardens of Rome is well worth including. Their website is here http://www.globetheatreroma.com/--Jim Stinson (talk) 20:14, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

The reunion[edit]

Editors may be interested in the BBC Radio4 programme - The Reunion, Sue MacGregor reunites five founders of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre - available on Listen Again for the next few days at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007x9vc. I'm afraid it may only be available to UK IP addresses though. Richerman (talk) 11:05, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
