Of particular interest are the replicas of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and Anne Hathaway's Cottage on the campus of Odessa College.Built in the 1960's, The Globe Theatre is a non-profit organization presenting classical and modern plays using an Elizabethan stage. Bringing a bit of British flair to the West Texas landscape, this replica of the original Globe Theatre, the home of William Shakespeare's acting company in England, is enhanced by its surrounding Writer's Garden and a replica of Shakespear's wife, Anne Hathaway's Cottage. The 410-seat octagonal theatre was the brain child of a local teacher and Shakespearean scholar, Mrs. Marjorie Morris, who wanted a proper showcase in which to showcase the Bard's plays. The Globe hosts community theatre performances, a monthly music show, as well as other great community acivities. « less

Yes it's been a while since I've been to this theatre but even with that it is a fun place to visit! They recreated the globe theatre like the one in England only to a smaller scale and has a roof instead of out side. I have been to see many performances there over the 27 years I've been here...

Every community theater has their schedule of performances that they produce each year or season. The Globe Theatre has had exceptional performances in the past because they have strived for quality. At this time of late Spring, I would suggest contacting the theatre staff or check their website for performances. The Globe Theater is worth driving to the Odessa College... More

I have attended a handful of performances here over the past decade, and each one was well produced and thoroughly enjoyable. We were a little sad to find the garden labyrinth missing the last time we visited. There is a replica of the Anne Hathaway cottage on site, and the theatre itself is quite nice. Most attendees come in business... More

The Globe Theatre of the Great Southwest is a good representation of Shakespeares theatre. In addition to the Theatre, the Anne Hathaway house and gardens is also located within the complex. The theatre is used for not only plays but is used for concerts and even weddings.

The Globe is a dusty little theater tucked on the dark southern edge of Odessa College. It is supposed to be a replica of the original Globe of England, I believe. It has a rose garden, and a cottage house a few steps from the theater. It is not high tech, bells and whistles, but we really enjoyed our visit.... More
