“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

Twelfth Night

October 31 – November 19, 2017

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Jerry Ruiz

Globe for All brings live, professional productions of Shakespeare to diverse multigenerational audiences in neighborhoods throughout San Diego. 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.

Twelfth Night delights with gorgeous poetry, moving music, and uproarious high jinks from some of Shakespeare’s most memorable comic characters. In topsy-turvy Illyria, love is making everyone crazy. The shipwrecked Viola falls for her master, the melancholy Duke Orsino, while he is hopelessly smitten with the wealthy Countess Olivia, who soon falls in love with someone she can’t have. When Viola’s twin brother Sebastian arrives on the scene, the confusion mounts—but can his arrival be the key to setting this wacky world straight?
