LONDON (AP) — Shakespeare's Globe, the open-air London playhouse that helped win modern audiences over to all-weather outdoor theatergoing, is embracing the great indoors.
The Globe on Tuesday unveiled details of a new indoor venue that will sit alongside the O-shaped Elizabethan theater on the banks of the River Thames.
Built from 17th-century plans, it will allow audiences to remain warm and dry as they watch plays by Shakespeare and his successors.
The venue is named the Sam Wanamaker Theatre after the late American actor-director who spent decades realizing his dream of rebuilding Shakespeare's playhouse.
It is due to open in January 2014, and will allow the Globe to hold performances year-round.
Builders have gained permission for the theater to be lit with candles — no small achievement in safety-conscious times.
