Shakespeare’s Globe Plays at Cinemas

William Shakespeare’s historic Globe Theatre will produce three celebrated dramas, and two of which are Shakespeare’s own, both comedies: All’s Well That Ends Well and Much Ado About Nothing. Christopher Marlowe’s grand tragedy Doctor Faustus also will be produced. The point: these three productions will be shown in cinemas across the UK, US, Australia, and New Zealand. Of All’s Well That Ends Well in particular, scholar Marjorie Garber states: “Yet it contains not one but two roles that would make an actress’s career (and have). Both Helena and the Countess are brilliant, complicated, strong women who, finding themselves in impossible situations, emerge not only whole but triumphant.”
