The old London theatre has been recreated as a working London theatre in 1997.  The original site of the Globe will probably never be excavated as it lies under a listed building.  In 1989 one of the Globe’s sister theatres, The Rose, was excavated and revealed that the design of the Micromodel is essentially correct.
