The Globe Theatre was a theatre in London associated with William Shakespeare. It was built in 1599 by Shakespeare's playing company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men, and was destroyed by fire on 29 June 1613. A second Globe Theatre was built on the same site by June 1614 and closed in 1642.
A modern reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, named "Shakespeare Globe" , opened in 1997 approximately 750 feet (230 m) from the site of the original theatre. Later on, this theatre was renamed as “Globe Theatre".
