“You don’t come to sit at a play, you sit in a play.” This was Ralph Cohen’s comment about the new Globe Theatre to his friend, Patrick Spottisowoode, Director of Globe Education. This endeavor to capture the intimacy of the live theatre as it occurred during Shakespeare’s time is a tribute as well a labor of love. The history of the design and construction era, 1970-1997, and the first 20 years of productions, 1997-2016, have been digitally preserved as an educational resource. The collection includes oral histories, architectural records, essays, programmes, prompt books, annual reports, Around the Globe magazine, and architectural and performance photographs.
