Last Friday I visited the Globe Theatre in London and what a wonderful experience it was! I truly adored the theatre and the experience. I went to see ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ and admittedly I’ve never read it but I wasn’t going to say no to such an opportunity. However, I think reading it now would pose to be something wonderful after adoring the play. I did purchase myself a lovely cushion to perch my backside on for the duration of the (around) three hours in which I sat through ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ because I don’t think my poor backside could cope with hard word for all that time.
I urge you all to come to Britain and take a visit to the lovely globe because not only is it a landmark to remember, but dropping in to watch a play also really shouldn’t be passed by!
‘The Taming of the Shrew’ was definitely hilarious, witty and easy to keep up with. Shakespeare can be daunting, but I found the production of this play to be all the more easy going and enjoyable.
The costumes certainly added to the whole experience and they were really fabulous. This is the cast above that were partaking in the play on my journey and this is definitely what I saw. It made me last most of all when Petruchio struts about naked with a pan on his head. He was certainly a character and one that I won’t forget quickly. His counterpart Katerina, was feisty and entertaining and they really drew me into the performance.
Without a shadow of a doubt, one of my favourite theatre experiences to date.
