Replicas of the Globe Theatre can be found in many locations around the world, and they are often connected to either theatre festivals or exhibitions where the best-known example is probably the Globe replica built for the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair and rebuilt the following year at the California Pacific International Exposition in Balboa Park, San Diego.1 After the closing of the exposition, Balboa Park became the venue for the San Diego National Shakespeare Festival until 1978, when it was, like the first Globe theatre in early modern London, consumed by fire. Other replicas built for a festival include the Adams Memorial Shakespeare Theatre in Cedar City, Utah (which opened in 1977), and the Globe in Neuss, Germany (1991). There are, of course, exceptions, as some replicas were not built for an exhibition or a festival, such as the 1987 Globe on London’s South Bank, the 1988 Panasonic Globe designed by Arata Isozaki in Tokyo, the 2000 Schwäbisch Hall Globe in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and the 1966 Globe of the Great Southwest in Odessa, Texas, to mention a few.2 A Globe replica was planned in Rio Acima as part of a cultural complex for the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
