Wooden ‘O’: Shakespeare’s Globe Reborn: Achieving an American’s Dream
Barry Day (au); Sir John Gielgud (fr). In 1949, in London’s Bankside, American actor Sam Wanamaker spotted a neglected plaque marking the site of Shakespeare’s original playhouse & had a vision of the Globe rebuilt. Nearly 50 years later, in June 1997, Wanamaker’s dream became a reality when the reborn Globe opened its doors,. How the new Wooden “O” came to be built is an enthralling saga that might have appealed to Shakespeare himself. Here we witness the events through the eyes of the participants -- scholars, architects, archaeologists, actors, directors, philanthropists, businessmen & politicians. Many of them wanted the Globe to happen their way, but Wanamaker was determined to make it happen his way. And, years after his death, so it did. Illustrations.
