Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London: In August of 2008, What Did a Ticket to Tour the Grounds Look Like, and How Much Did It Cost?

I like how the ticket conveys a hazy sense of divine light coming down upon the theatre from above, accompanied by two “official” looking royal red stamps—which are actually simply decorative.

Shakespeare’s works are the West’s secular scripture, and the Globe Theatre gives us the impression that it is here, upon the bank of the Thames, that London gives answer to Rome’s Pantheon—but in which a single god—Shakespeare—is capable of filling all the grottos.
