Chamberlains men were the actors, so they would play the nomal plays Shakespeare suggested. Shakespeare also sort of ushered in the Globe theatre with his writings.
One of the theatre's of Shakespeare's time, and nowadays the name of a good many theatres that house Shakespeare Festivals or plays.
The Globe Theatre was a theatre in London, England. The Globe was built in 1599 using timber from an earlier theatre. It was built by members of William Shakespeare's play…ing company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men. The Globe Theatre had a total of about 3, 000 seats standing and sitting. It was a three - storey building, roughly circular with an open space approximately 100 feet (30m) in diameter in its centre. At the base of the stage, there was an area called the pit, where, for a penny, people would stand and watch the performance. Around the yard were three levels of stadium-style sets, which were more expensive than standing room. A rectangular stage platform was set in the middle of the open air yard, with one side attached to one of the sides of the theatre building. On this stage, there was a trap door used by performers to enter the area below the stage. The ceiling under this roof was called the "heavens," and was painted with clouds and the sky. People from the poor apprentices to the relatively well-to-do attended the theatre. The poorest people stood on the ground whereas the most wealthy or aristocratic could sit in the balcony or even on the stage. The first Globe Theatre was destroyed by fire on June 29, 1613. A second Globe Theatre was built on the same spot in 1614 which was torn down in 1644. A replica of the first Globe was built in 1997 near the place where the original stood.

The stage was lit by natural light so it was open to the sky.
The Globe Theater was situated at Bankside in Southwark, London
The Globe Theatre was a theatre in London associated with William Shakespeare. It was built in 1599 by Shakespeare's playing company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men, and was destr…oyed by fire on 29 June 1613. A second Globe Theatre was built on the same site by June 1614 and closed in 1642. But neither of those theatres is Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. Shakespeare's Globe Theatre was built in 1997 on a site very close to the site of the original Globe, which it imitates in many respects.
During the life of the Globe Playhouse, there were several competitors. At any one time there were four to six licensed acting, or playing, troupes performing in the London su…burbs. The Curtain catered to audiences in Shorditch, north of London, until it was replaced by The Fortune. The Fortune appears to be unique among Elizabethan public playhouses in that it was square instead of polygonal or round. The Red Bull was a converted innyard. Most plays had been performed in such innyards until the City of London banned productions within city limits in 1575. The Rose was a fourteen-sided structure in the same general area as The Globe. It was enlarged and improved in 1592, at which time its shape changed from somewhat circular to oval or egg-shaped. The Swan was also in Southwark, south of the River Thames. The Cockpit, a private/indoor playhouse stood on Drury Lane; after it burned down and was rebuilt, it became known as The Phoenix. The Hope sat very close to The Globe and was built at the same time. Blackfriars was one of the first private/indoor playhouses, originally occupied by a troupe of boy players until 1608 when the King's Men took it over as their winter playhouse. It was actually inside the city limits, but because it sat on land owned by the crown, it was not subject to city ordinances. The Globe stood just across the Thames River from Blackfriars. Their top floors were visible to each other on a clear day.
There were a few known theatres around, including the Rose Theatre just down the street from the Globe, and the Hope and Swan, also in Southwark. Quite often companies perform…ed in inns and local spaces. Most companies toured their shows, very few got royal patronage, so somewhere like the Globe was big and had very few major compeititors. The biggest competitors were the Lord Admiral's Men, with their star actor Ned Alleyn, who in 1600 built the Fortune Theatre in Shoreditch. Unfortunately over time the Fortune, which was bigger and fancier than the Globe, and the other northern theatres such as the Red Bull got a bad reputation. They were seen as rowdy and uncivilised, where the unwashed masses would go to drink, have fun, watch a raunchy show, and maybe get into a fistfight afterwards. This reputation did not affect the Southwark theatres as much.
No it wasn't. The ancient Greeks and Romans built very effective outdoor theatres many of which are in use today, 1500 years and more before the Globe was built in 1599. But t…he Globe was not even the oldest theatre in Britain which was intended as a theatre not just an innyard. The Theatre in Shoreditch, built 1576, was the first. Newington Butts, The Curtain, The Rose, The Swan and the Blackfriars all were built before The Globe.
A theater farther up the Thames river called The Rose and another even further west called the Swan were the Globe's main competition south of the river. The main competitors …of the Lord Chamberlain's men, the Lord Admiral's men, built a large and imposing theatre in Shoreditch north of London in 1600 called the Fortune, which was the biggest competition the Globe had. There were a number of other playhouses as well, the Red Bull (Shoreditch), the Boar's Head (Clerkenwell) and the Hope (also in Southwark and a rival to the Globe, but built in 1614 after Shakespeare's day)
it was named the globe theatre because thats what they wanted to call it.... it was destroyed cause people got mad and burned the wasteful building down...
Yes, Its a lot more main-stream now, more tourist's and what not, mainly english philosiphers.
watch plays and see where Shakespeare worked
The Lord Chamberlain's Men had a dispute with their landlord who owned the property on which The Theater stood. So, they dismantled The Theater and rebuilt it on another lot s…outh of the city as The Globe.
Yes, in the shakespearian time. It has been demolished since.
It's most often associated with him, yes. But he was not the sole owner or even the largest shareholder. It was not the only theatre he had a share in. It was far from the… only theatre he acted in. He had nothing to do with its construction.
