Subject: Re: Globe Schedule
Can anyone advise me on whether firm dates have been established for the first
season at the new Globe? I did some quick browsing on the Web site and
couldn't find the information.
My college runs a study abroad program in England every other year; because of
the change in the RSC Stratford schedule we are seriously contemplating a
change from a fall to a spring program; however, if the new Globe schedule runs
from mid-May to early September (as I have heard rumored), we may be less
likely to catch those performances during a spring program which would end in
early May than we would in a fall program which begins in late August (sorry
for the Dickensian sprawl of that sentence!)
Also, does anyone know if the new Globe will have a repertory schedule like the
RSC, or a serial run? Again, this makes a big difference in deciding when to
come in on a season.
I hope this sort of query is appropriate for this list.
