Groundlings and More

Last night we saw Romeo and Juliet at the Popup Globe. Our son Christoph had shouted us prime seats (they still were quite hard though…), giving us excellent view of the proceedings. Spare a thought for the “groundlings” – standing room only in the pit – the attraction being the even closer proximity to the action, even getting roped into the story, not to mention the price ($15, or $10 on the night).

A bloodbath – but a great experience.

    The performance space appeals to me. I’ve seen quite a lot of Shakespearean works live, but somehow I’ve never seen Romeo and Juliet performed.
