The original Globe Theater, which once stood along the banks of the Thames river in London, was the most popular playhouse in Elizabethan England. The Globe staged plays by the greatest playwright of his day, William Shakespeare, had its life cut short by fire, and, in the twentieth century rose again to entertain thousands of visitors.
