Community Nights at The Old Globe, formerly known as Affinity at the Globe, is a festive opportunity for theatre lovers who share an identity to connect over refreshments and conversation before enjoying a Globe production. These community spaces are intended for those who self-identify as a member of a particular community group. The Globe has committed to creating spaces for the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and LGBTQIA+ communities, and invites you to celebrate with the following shows.

Our BIPOC events and LGBTQIA+ events are designed for those who self-identify as part of those communities.

We can’t wait to see you there!

King James

Black Theatre Night

This event was created as an uplifting space for Black Community patrons to socialize and enjoy beverages and small bites before the production.

We ask that this be a safe space for the community.
