“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
