Welcome to a new wave of music at the Globe - our summer series of Wonder Women, providing a new soundtrack curated by tastemaker Lauren Laverne and The Pool this summer. Combining the body-to-body intimacy of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse with the pluralistic anarchy of the iconic Globe stage, this series of gigs celebrates the extraordinary innovation of some powerful and visionary women who are altering the complexion of popular music in the 21st century in ways both iconic and disruptive.
Lauren’s online platform The Pool, a vibrant new congregation of lifestyle content for and by women, joins the Globe to co-present this brand new shock of colour in our summer Wonder Season. Look for exclusive features from us and The Pool that will acquaint you with names strange and familiar, and mark August 15th in your calendars for our first-ever public gig in the Globe Theatre with fiercely imaginative electropop goddess, Roisin Murphy.
❛I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of this fabulous season, which takes place in one of London's most beautiful venues. This summer the Globe Theatre and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse will play host to some of the most compelling women making music today. The bill is adventurous, entertaining and exciting… join us if you can, it's going to be so much fun!❜
