Globe Theatre rebuilt

6233

Fans of the Bard know that the Globe Theatre, where most of Shakespeare’s plays were performed, burned down centuries ago.

But far fewer probably know that it has been restored. It is better than ever, with reinforcement to handle earthquakes, fire-proof construction, sprinkler systems, lighting — everything Shakespeare himself probably couldn’t imagine.

And in a perfectly fitting location: in Balboa Park, in San Diego, California. Thank the Kroc Foundation (McDonald’s) for major funding.
