Shakespeare’s New Houses

Shakespeare gets ever more popular. New theatres devoted to the Bard are being built in Europe. “In the past month an Italian version of London’s Globe theatre has sprung up in the Villa Borghese park in the heart of Rome. In Poland, efforts are underway to reconstruct a Shakespearean theatre that thrived in the Baltic port city of Gdansk almost 400 years ago, but has since been replaced by a carpark.”
