Erected in 1599, The Globe was London’s first theater built by and for actors. As one of seven shareholders in the company that commissioned it (not to mention the company’s chief playwright), Shakespeare probably had some say in the theater’s design. He wrote many of his plays, from Julius Caesar on, with this venue in mind. To quote the bard, "O for a muse of fire!" Henry V

The stage of the Globe Theatre, London. The pillars are wood with a faux painted finish made to look like marble as they would have been in Shakespeare's time. The reconstruction is as faithful to the original as modern scholarship and traditional craftsmanship can make it, but for the time being this Globe is – and is likely to remain – neither more nor less than the ‘best guess’ at Shakespeare’s theatre. Great tour and museum!
