Calling all Shakespeare fans: new service lets viewers watch Globe Theatre productions online
The Globe Player lets viewers rent or purchase videos of various Globe productions, including those in languages other than English.
The theater has created the Globe Player, an online service that lets viewers watch various productions performed there. This includes language options such as a production of “Hamlet” in Lithuanian with English subtitles and “Antony & Cleopatra” in Turkish with English subtitles as well as productions performed in English.
The productions will cost viewers a little more than $6 to rent and almost $13 to purchase. There’s also free videos such as interviews with actors Ian McKellan of the “Hobbit” films, “Philomena" actress Judi Dench, and Ewan McGregor of “Beginners," among others.
