“Globe for All – our guiding principle, our animating spirit, our rallying cry.”

Globe for All is both a core value and a core Arts Engagement program that reimagines authentic, participatory engagement beyond conventional output of theatrical productions. A decade from now, the Globe will be known as a creator of world-class theatre productions and equally as a hub for participatory art-making, fostering cross-cultural and intergenerational shared experiences that traverse socioeconomic and geographic boundaries. 

The Globe for All Tour, one of the most transformative initiatives introduced by Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein, brings live, professional productions of Shakespeare to underserved and diverse multi-generational audiences in the neighborhoods throughout the region. Performed free-of-charge in nontraditional venues including homeless shelters, senior centers, military installations, community centers, and correctional facilities, these productions give audiences an intimate, compelling experience that fosters a shared sense of community between performers and spectators.

Globe for All

Measure for Measure

November 1 – 20, 2016

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Patricia McGregor

Measure for Measure is one of Shakespeare’s richest plays, mixing comedy and drama in a thrilling story of love and power. In a decadent Vienna, the strict, newly appointed leader Angelo wants to rid the city of moral decay—until he falls for a young nun pleading for the life of her brother and things get complicated. Justice, lust, hypocrisy, and redemption take center stage along with a wild cast of characters in a bold staging of this timely classic.
