Other facts: Shakespeare's Globe is a reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre. It was founded by American actor and director Sam Wanamaker and is built about 230 metres from the site of the original theatre. The original Elizabethan Theatre called the Globe was built in 1599 by the playing company the Lord Chamberlain's Men, to which Shakespeare belonged. It was destroyed by fire on 29 June 1613 and rebuilt by June 1614. It was closed in 1642 and demolished in 1644. A reconstruction of an indoor Jacobean playhouse, called the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, is built next to Shakespeare's Globe and opened on 15 January 2014 with a production of The Duchess of Malfi.
