Editor reviews

William Shakespeare was one of a group of actors who founded the Globe Theatre in London in 1599. Theatre was a popular form of entertainment, and the city would flock to the Globe Theatre to witness the debut of many of Shakespeare's plays. A popular destination, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is a modern reconstruction of the original, which burned down in 1613. This iMinds title is a thorough recount of the Globe's history, and Elouise Rothwell's inquisitive style helps illuminate on details from the theatre's architecture to the modern amenities that await Shakespeare-loving tourists.
