Shakespeare like it’s 1614
Pop-up Globe, the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, the second Globe, has popped up right next door to the iconic Sidney Myer Music Bowl. It started in New Zealand last year and is here for the Summer .

I went to see Much ado about nothing; My favourite Shakespeare Comedy. I wasn't sure where it actually as , but so easy to get to you could see it as soon as you accessed the gardens. The theatre is not huge so while it was busy there were not huge crowds. Despite interpreting there was not, there actually was food available and wine and merchandise. Great views back to city esp from the mound overlooking the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
The play and cast were brilliant FUNNY! and really lively production. I love Benedick and Beatrice esp with there wot and silk of each other. The scenes where they were hiding while their friends told them of the others love for them was esp good.
Benedick hid himself in the arbor! (up on a flower decorated swing!) and Beatrice's antics at hiding on and off stage were a hoot.
Looking at going to Henry V but Ticketmaster Best Seats are all side stage limited view so will try elsewhere if possible.
