What is the New Globe Theatre?

It is called Shakespeare's Globe, and is built on the south bank of the Thames river in Southwark, not far from where the Globe Theatre Shakespeare acted in was located. Shakespeare's Globe was built in 1997 and attempts to be an accurate representation of what an Elizabethan open-air theatre would be like, with some exceptions: there is a fire control system in the thatched roof, there is more than one door for people to enter and exit, and there are bathrooms. Shakespeare's Globe is a successful and popular venue, not only for Shakespeare's plays, but for other forms of drama as well.
