The Globe Theatre was built in 1599 on the south end of the Thames, near the Rose Theatre. Will Kempe, Augustine Phillips, John Heminage, Thomas Pope and William Shakespeare co-owned the theatre. All five of these men were in the Chamberlain's Men acting troupe. Co-owning the Globe Theatre, brought great fortune to them. At least 1,500 people could fit in the Globe Theatre. It stood three stories tall and contained no roof as depicted in the picture above. On June 29, 1613 a cannonball was accidentally fired during the play Henry VIII, setting the Globe Theatre on fire. It took them an entire year to rebuild the theatre and open it back up to the public. Also in 1644, the Globe Theatre was torn down and was replaced by houses. There have been many attempts to rebuild the theatre, but none have succeeded. Replicas of the Globe Theatre can be found in Tokyo and London.
