Book Review | SHAKESPEARE'S GLOBE: A Theatrical Experiment by Christie Carson & Farah Karim-Cooper | pub. Cambridge University Press
None of us seriously believed that it might attract big crowds. The most clear-sighted objective any of us had was to get the replica of Shakespeare’s Globe as right as we could, so that we could then see what might be done with it. Andrew Gurr, Professor Emeritus at the University of Reading. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Theatre Review | TIMON OF ATHENS | Shakespeare's Globe
The recent scholarship of Gary Taylor and John Lavagnino and the long-awaited arrival of the Oxford Middleton have given added incentive to London’s Shakespeare’s Globe to stage this First Folio rarity. Timon of Athens, a play long considered ‘unfinished’ because of its uncomfortable situation in the Shakespeare canon, is now generally accepted to be a collaborative work between the established Shakespeare and the young up-and-coming Thomas Middleton. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Theatre Review | THE FRONTLINE | Shakespeare's Globe
There’s something rather reactionary in the the Globe's decision to stage Ché Walker’s sprawling urban drama, given that they must have had a choice of thousands of new writers’ work. Granted, Walker imbues the play with a certain amount of grandeur, but beyond this it’s difficult to shake the youth theatre associations. Harriet Davis [more]

Theatre Review | A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM | Shakespeare's Globe
Being a Globe virgin, I tasted the 21st-century version of what it would have been like to be in the audience back in WS's day with wonderment—the gallery benches, the standing 'commoners' below, the electric moon on strings bobbing above us and the feeling that we could vocalise our appreciation in as rowdy a manner as we wished. Julienne Bannister [more]

Theatre Review | KING LEAR | Shakespeare's Globe
Productions of Shakespeare's great tragedies seem to come round in cycles nowadays. We have just had a spate of Macbeths. Now it seems we are well into a King Lear jag while next year is already looking set to be all about Hamlet. So if you are thinking of producing a big name Shakespeare tragedy you had better make sure it has something about it to make it stand out from the crowd. Jack Hughes [more]
