Wooden Pop-Up Globe Theatre Replica Arrives in Melbourne

A wooden Pop-Up Globe Theatre has been erected in Melbourne that is a full-scale reconstruction of the second Globe Theatre in London, which opened in 1614. It has been built at Kings Domain next to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl and, from 21 September to 12 November, will host a season of four classic plays: As You Like ItMuch Ado About NothingOthello and Henry V.

According to its New Zealand creator, Miles Gregory, “It’s a Jacobean theatre that has popped up in the middle of Melbourne. You will see a spectacular stage, the heavens above it, and the way that people are all around you on three levels. It’s awe-­inspiring.”

The open-air pop-up Globe Theatre began in Auckland last year and was such a success that it has now arrived Melbourne, the first city outside New Zealand to experience the amazing atmosphere in the three-storey, 900-person-capacity theatre.
