New Globe Theater
Römer spearheaded the proposal to re-imagine a dilapidated military fort in New York Harbor into a vibrant cultural and education centre, working in partnership with Shakespeare’s Globe and with an artistic board incl. Al Pacino, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kevin Kline, Mark Rylance and Sam Mendes.
“Assiduous research, meticulous planning, boundless enthusiasm and an unswervable devotion to a lofty ideal. These are the qualities that built Shakespeare’s Globe, here in London, and it is because I see these same qualities in Barbara Romer’s vision for a New Globe in New York that we are partnering with her to help realise this world-class dream.”
Peter Kyle, Executive Director, Shakespeare’s Globe
