Some may recall that at the start of the pandemic, social media began about 17 years ago to use the trivia Shakespeare wrote during a pandemic King Lear as an invitation to the artists to encourage them Use these difficulties to be more productive. But it turns out that if Shakespeare had written King Lear during this pandemic he wouldn't even have a theater to play because the globe is about to go bankrupt.
It's almost as far curtains for Shakespeare's Globe, the reconstruction of Shakespeare's original Globe Theater. The much too cozy medieval theater has been empty for months instead of posting some of his Shakespeare adaptations on YouTube, including the recently canceled performance of Macbeth . (Although this is difficult to find because the video title does not mention the piece). The globe has no bums on the seats and is in a financial emergency. Neither a borrower nor a lender, the charity is not funded by the Arts Council England, rather than generating almost all of its sales and trading revenue. This has resulted in the independent theater being unable to qualify for emergency aid for art venues, and now Shakespeare's Globe has issued a terrible warning that it will take $ 7 million to stay afloat or without a kiss to die due to social distance guidelines.
