I brought my 14 yr old daughter and she loved it. This is exactly the best kind of outreach to bring theater/Shakespeare to the young. - Audience member at Cleveland Heights/University Heights Main Library

Cool beans! Kudos to the writer! this play must have taken lots of research and time. It was grand. - Audience member at Lakewood Public Library


Dreams become reality when one man's magical experience, while performing on a replica stage of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre during Cleveland’s 1936 Great Lakes Exposition, inspires him to rebuild the original playhouse on the River Thames.

From London to the shores of Lake Erie and back again, what's past is truly prologue in an inspiring tale of three Globe Theatres that are forever united by history.
