Trailer for a production of Romeo and Juliet at the restored Globe
On this day in 1997 the reconstruction of Shakespeare’s Globe theatre was opened.
Well, it’s not exactly a secret, but still…
The conception of all the world as a stage & of the playhouses as a microcosm of the world is indicated in the name, motto & architecture of the “Globe” theatre. (CW 20, 106)
The motto of the Globe was “Totus mundus agit histrionem” — the whole world is a playhouse.
