Shakespeare at Auckland's Pop-up Globe

From Standing Room Only, 12:46 pm on 24 January 2016

Pop-up Globe is the world's first full-scale working replica of the second Globe theatre, and eight of Shakespeare's works will be performed in Auckland before it heads to another part of the world.

The pop up theatre is closely modelled on the original, and actors will work on a stage that's 360°, offering lots of opportunities to interact with the audience. Especially the groundlings, as most will be standing looking up at the stage.

Lynn Freeman met two of the directors: Ben Naylor (Romeo and Juliet), along Dr Miles Gregory (Twelfth Night) who's also the Pop-up Globe's artistic director.
