A Globe Grows In Manhattan?

The National Park Service is accepting proposals for a renovation of historic Castle Williams, located on New York’s Governors’ Island between Brooklyn and Manhattan, and one of the most intriguing has come from British architect Norman Foster. “Foster has designed an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Globe Theater in London that would fit inside the 194-year-old castle and serve as a stage for Shakespeare productions and other performing arts… The cost of the new theater is estimated at $78 million, including renovation of the castle.”
