Correct response: What is the (Shakespeare’s) Globe Theatre?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The original Globe Theatre in London was built in 1599 by the Lord Chamberlain’s Men (Shakespeare’s playing company). It was once destroyed by fire in 1513 (by cannon fire during Henry VIII) but was rebuilt and stayed open until the 1640s.
The modern Globe was built to the specifications of the original theatre, including the only thatched roof allowed in London since the Great Fire, and opened in 1997. It was built about 200 metres away from the original location in order to ensure that it still sat on the bank of the Thames.
(And for any know-it-alls who want to claim that it’s just called Shakespeare’s Globe: its own website makes reference to the current building as the Globe Theatre.)
