Globe Player from Shakespeare's Globe

In case you have not heard, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre has just created a Globe Player online video service.

You can visit the Globe Player here:

Many of the productions online so far are from 2012 Globe to Globe Festival, which include a Hamlet spoken in Lithuanian, A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Korean, Titus Andronicus in Cantonese and many more. I saw the production of Venus and Adonis spoken in various African languages, when it toured to the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C.

Stephen Fry and Mark Rylance in Twelfth Night

Roger Allam as Falstaff

Jamie Parker as Henry V

But there are also some of their better known productions like Twelfth Night starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry (which I saw in New York City), Henry IV parts 1 and 2 starring Roger Allam as Falstaff and Jamie Parker as Prince Hal (my review here), and Henry V starring Jamie Parker (my review here).

I hope you watch as many of these plays as possible on the Globe Player. Because if the Globe Player is as successful as it should be, then they will hopefully put more plays online, and many more in the future.
