The Globe Theatre

After reading about Miss Vandeverre's new venture in Renaissance Island, I decided to go and investigate for myself. There are numerous fantasy and quasi-mediaeval sims in SL and while Renaissance Island suffers from some of the faults, it appears that the builders have tried to keep faithful to the time period they've aimed at.

One of the more impressive builds in the sim is a recreation of London's Globe Theatre.

The seats and the groundlings

All SL's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. (To steal from Shakespeare)

Scattered around the place are notecard dispensers which help to provide information on the historical details of how and why things were done in a particular way. A very worthwhile endeavour.
