Shakespeare used the globe theater for his plays

The Globe Theater was built in a style that was similar to a colosseum theater. It could hold about 1500 people and had no heating so all the plays were performed in the summer. On June 29, 1613 their was a fire that burned in down but about a year later the second one was built. After about 30 years the theater was taken down in 1644.
