Guided By Isobel

In London, we owe a huge debt of gratitude to an American, Sam Wanamaker.

Lots of visitors to London enjoy our thriving theatre culture. You don’t have to go far to find something to suit your tastes.

But for me, one of my favourite theatres exists thanks to Wanamaker, a visionary who overcame no little opposition to rebuild Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on Bankside.
It’s not like any other theatre I have ever been to. The closest would be Regent’s Park Open Air, also a great place, but the Globe is Special, and that capitalisation is deliberate.

This afternoon I was there to see As You Like It.

What a treat.
