Dromgoole Takes On The Globe

Dominic Dromgoole hasn’t distinguished himself as a producer of the Bard’s works. And yet here he is running London’s Globe Theatre. “For all his excitement, the idea of Dromgoole, 42, running the Globe is going to take some getting used to – and he’s got a lot to prove. The role was previously filled by the sensitive actor Mark Rylance, who bashfully attributed the Globe’s unexpected box-office success – generating an annual pre-tax profit of £1.5 million – to the ensemble effort rather than his own stellar contribution.”
