      About 25 years ago an actor associated with the Globe came to our school in Germany & gave a lecture about Shakespeare in order to raise funds for the building of the theater. I've been fascinated by it ever since & visit it on every trip to London.

    • Robbie Pfeufer Kahn
      Shakespearean scholar, Stephen Greenblatt, notices the Latin phrase Hamlet utters: "hic et ubique" (here and everywhere) about the presence of his father's ghost. Globe to Globe Hamlet gives the phrase new meaning: Shakespeare est "hic et ubique!"
