True Shakespeare Performance

As we all know Shakespeare acted and wrote plays for The Globe theatre. But do we really know what it would be like to see or act in a performance space like this. The best place to start interpreting a play is with its history. The Globe has an unique style of structure. Shakespeare plays were perfectly written to work with this type of structure. IF there was a way to slightly convert the theatre space into The Globe, that could create a different play going experience than people were expecting. Have a bigger Outer stage and create a Inner Stage, or maybe add facing to the walls of the theatre that would mimic the Globe's three stories and balconies.
