Dear Philip,

I'd suggest you talk with Gordon Kipling, a professor at UCLA and expert
on Elizabethan staging. Gordon is convinced that the Globe was built 180
degrees wrong and makes a very persuasive case for same. By all means,
let Gordon know that I've suggested you make contact.

Good luck.

Steve

Wouldn't the research element of your dissertation be much easier to
satisfy by combing through the SHAKSPER archives for references to the
said performing space?

Especially the posts around the time of the development and opening of
the Globe...

The atmosphere at the Globe is one of rapt attention. The audience, in
the main, already knows the play, and in large part are students of the
play, hanging on every word. The audience is making interpretive
judgments. The naivete of a group of people coming together to be
entertained by a largely novel experience is one thing the new Globe
cannot reproduce (should that be desired.)

All the best,
R.A. Cantrell
