Pop Up Globe - New dates on sale at 11am tomorrow

New dates on sale at 11am tomorrow

Due to overwhelming demand, the Anthony Harper Auckland Season at Pop-up Globe has been extended for a second and final time.

Two additional weeks of Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night go on sale tomorrow at 11am via Eventfinda.

New dates will extend from 27 April to 8 May. This is the last chance to experience the theatre that has captured the hearts of a nation. Fans who have been trying to secure tickets for the past month are urged to act quickly as these shows will sell out.

Dr Miles Gregory, Artistic Director and Founder of Pop-up Globe, says “The response to Pop-up Globe has been astonishing. We’ve been overwhelmed by both demand for tickets and the most amazing feedback from many people who, like me, have loved their experience at Pop-up Globe.”

Since opening on February 19, Pop-up Globe shows have enjoyed critical and popular acclaim, 9 companies have presented 10 shows, over 80,000 tickets have been sold, and 20,000 school students have attended performances of Shakespeare’s masterworks performed in the space for which they were written. The majority of performances have been to packed houses. The season has already been extended once to meet demand. For weeks, ticket buyers have been scrambling to secure the last few ‘Groundling’ tickets which are the only remaining available tickets.

“Our cast delights its audiences every time they perform these shows” says Gregory.

“We’re very grateful to Auckland City, our neighbours, supporters, sponsors and partners all of whom have been instrumental in allowing Pop-up Globe to pop-up, and now stay up, so Aucklanders can enjoy more of these very special performances.”

“Most of all I’d like to thank Auckland for welcoming and embracing Pop-up Globe, the world’s first temporary working replica of the second Globe theatre. I don’t think Pop-up Globe could have popped up anywhere else in the world. This is a very special project in a very special place.”

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
