After performing to an astonishing 450,000 people in just two years, the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, the second Globe, will soon pop up in Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter.

The creators of Pop-up Globe, together with representatives of Live Nation, NAB, and Entertainment Quarter announced today that the world's first full-scale temporary working replica of the second Globe, the theatre Shakespeare and his company built and opened in 1614 after the first Globe theatre burned to the ground, will pop up on the Show Ring at Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter.

For six weeks only, Pop-up Globe will present a spectacular festival of Shakespeare unlike Sydney has ever seen before. In just two years, Pop-up Globe has become one of the most popular new theatres ever, drawing audiences of more than 450,000 people in the first 24 months including more than 150,000 attendances at its critically-acclaimed season in Melbourne earlier this year. Pop-up Globe Founder and Artistic Director, Dr Miles Gregory, says he believes Shakespeare’s work performed in the space it is written for is a completely unique and transformative experience.

“Our audiences are blown away by the immersive experience of seeing Shakespeare performed in the space for which it was written. The relationship between actor and audience, the spectacular space itself, together with the power of Shakespeare’s incredible work, means attending plays at Pop-up Globe is totally different from anything you’ve seen before,” says Gregory.
