The Old Globe celebrates its 82nd anniversary!

It has been an extraordinary journey - from it's start at the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition to its current three theatre complex. That journey is revisited this fall at the Women's Museum of California. Themes of Shakespeare, strong community involvement, and artistic adaptation are unifying threads and from its beginnings, women have played a strong role in the Globe's story.

There have been many female players, including directors, actors, playwrights, craftspeople, and business leaders. All have performed their roles but while a performance is "for the moment" the Women of the Old Globe, it seems are etched permanently in memory and continue to inspire and inform.
