The Bard himself would’ve felt comfortable in this theatre.

Shakespeare’s Globe theatre in London is addding some innovations that will give audiences a sense of theatre as it was 400 years ago.

They’re adding a roof – and candles: hundreds of them twinkling in chandeliers and sconces inside the new indoor venue which stands alongside the Globe’s Elizabethan-style open air playhouse near the River Thames.

The playhouse was built using plans from the 1600’s and employed centuries-old techniques. It’s productions will be lit entirely by candles.

The building will allow the Globe to present plays year-round for the first time.

Artistic director Dominic Dromgoole says they wanted to create a theatre in which Shakespeare would have felt right at home.
