I THINK APPOINTING A NEW DIRECTOR OF THE GLOBE IS FOR THE BEST FOR EVERYBODY. After a little bit of reflection, I think that what happened at the Globe is for the best. There are already a lot of theaters with state-of-the-art light and sound systems. The Globe will remain unique in Britain in its dedication to trying to reproduce the conditions in which Shakespeare’s plays were originally performed.
Especially after the publicity that her Globe experience has given her, Emma Rice should have no difficulty in finding theaters with equipment suited to the kind of plays that she wants to perform —and she won’t have any obligation to direct plays that she finds uncongenial.
