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
ashland oregon shakespeare festival | Oregon Shakespeare Festival - Ashland | Spent a summer in this hippie college town, 1972. Saw every play at this theater, killed rattlesnakes in the hills, hung at Lithia park, lounged in the natural hot springs that popped up everywhere, and traveled the area. Lovely town.
