About The Globe Theatre.
Globe Theater or The Globe is an English theater built in 1599 and destroyed on June 29, 1613 by a fire incident, being rebuilt in 1613 and permanently closed in 1642. Outside the current Globe Theater in Southwark, a modern building was built and reopened in 1997, about 200 meters from the original building, it is now called Shakespeare's Globe Theater or New Globe Theater. William Shakespeare was one of the owners, turning the theater into an arena for performances of plays such as Hamlet and King Lear. Closed in 1642, after the victory of the Puritans led by Oliver Cromwell in the English Civil War (1642-1649), the theater would be rebuilt and reopened in 1996. The reconstitution of the original features of the Globe was possible thanks to archaeological research, which discovered its foundations and the ruins of the Rose theater, built at the same time.
