Global Responses to Shakespeare, Hamlet and the Globe on Tour 2014-2016

This project builds on previous research at Shakespeare's Globe on audiences and audience experiences of performance in the Globe Theatre. The main aim of this project is to capture the global response to the Globe's Hamlet on tour in the years 2014-2016 (the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth and the 400th anniversary of his death) and to examine the global impact of live performances of Shakespearean drama upon the most wide-ranging and varied audiences that any one production will have encountered.
