Modeled after Shakespeare's own theaters, the Old Globe Theatre is actually part of a complex of three theaters also including the Cassius Carter Centre Stage
and the outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. Sadly, the 1935 original Globe has been replaced since it was destroyed by fire, though it appears that the renovation is a success. In 1984, the 581-seat replica won a Tony award for best regional theater. Predictably, the theater is home to an annual Shakespeare festival, but it is open year round. It also hosts much more than the classics. Its focus is actually the opposite—opening new plays.
