The Globe Theater was built out of wood and thatch on a brick foundation. The approximate size of the theater was an overall diameter of thirty meters. The approximate height of the Globe was twelve meters to the tip of the gallery, and then another eighteen meters from the gallery to the heaven. The central open yard had a diameter of twenty-one meters, and the stage was ten to twelve meters wide. A rectangular stage platform was known as an “apron stage” thrust out to the middle of the open-air yard.
According to the Accounts of the Master of the Revels (published in 1842), Othello was performed in 1604. The full entry reads: "By the King's Majesty's Players. Hallowmas Day, being the first of November, a play in the banqueting house at Whitehall called The Moor of Venice." Other evidence supports the fact that Shakespeare wrote the play in or before 1604. As William Rolfe explains in his book A Life of William Shakespeare: Stokes (Chronological Order of Shakespeare's Plays) shows that it was written before 1606 by the fact that in the quarto of 1622 (i.1.4) we find the oath "S'blood" (God's blood), while this is omitted in the folio.
A flag was flown from the top of the theatre to signal a play was being shown that day. The heavens were a building above the stage, it contained a hoisting machine that lowered props down to the stage and raised them up, and also special effects such as lighting and thunder were produced there. The musicians and actors for special scenes used the balcony. Finally the tiring house was the actors dressing room, it was located behind the stage. Most theatres in Elizabethan England were designed this way with little variety.
The interior of the building had expanded foam insulation. This was used to curb the noise when bands would perform at the club. Other areas had wooden paneling. The fire started at approximately 23:07. The headlining band had small pyrotechnics that are known as “gerbs”.
This essay will relate the study of organizational communication to the movie Gosford Park. The essay addresses the following ideas in organizational communication: structural relationships that are present, demonstrate examples of organizational symbols used, rules of rights within the servants’ class, and how hegemony operates in the household.

In the ancient Indian epic Mahabharata there are references to puppets. The Rajasthani Puppet from India is notable and there are many Indian ventriloquists and puppeteers. The first Indian ventriloquist, Professor Y.K. Padhye, introduced this form of puppetry to India in the 1920s and his son, Ramdas Padhye, subsequently popularised ventriloquism and puppetry. Puppet, Puppeteer & Audience The language of puppetry is a rich one, indeed!
This specific play is produced by a well-known playwright, Steve Martin. The play was originally written back in the year 1993, but has been put on by many different theatres across the world since then. The focus of this play is a spoof on how it would play out if there was somehow a meeting that occurred between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, one of the greatest artist and greatest thinkers ever. They are arguably two of the most influential people of the 20th century, and definitely help mold our world into what it is today. I think the topics and main themes and ideas can all be tied together into a single category because they all relate.
Then I walked into the theater and the set surprised me. It looked like a proscenium stage but only had about one foot level of stage so the actors were standing on the same floor as the peoples’ feet in the first row. There was a back drop with stage lights and some cool props. They had this old rusty farm tractor on the left, some winter-dead trees, and a rocking chair on the stage. The audience seats were stadium seating and went up maybe 8 or 9 rows.
Theater is everywhere in our life. Wedding, holiday parade, president election, car race can all be categorized as theatrical events, because of the role playing involved and the presence of an audience. Among all theatrical activities, one is not invented until a decade ago, yet closely related to the ancient theater --- flash mob. Flash mob can be defined as a sudden art performance by a group of suddenly resembled people in front of the public. It, like a theater work, consists of actors, an audience, a production process prior to the performance (selection and coordination of performer, music, stage, costumes, choreography).
