THE COMEDY OF ERRORS

Of all the history that surrounds London none seems to match the mystic of The Globe Theatre. For the price of five pounds (about $7.50) I stood like a "groundling" in the pit last night and watched Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. Thought to be one of the first plays he wrote, The Comedy of Errors was amazingly funny and a testament to Shakespeare's emerging genius.
A beautiful open air theatre, The Globe was reconstructed in 1997 based on records of Shakespeare's Globe (built in 1599) which burned to the ground in 1613 because of theatrical cannon that misfired during a performance of Henry VIII.
