Globe theatre to stage Henry VIII 400 years after fire

The theatre was rebuilt just one year later, but the Globe’s artistic director Dominic Dromgoole will be hoping for better luck when the new production opens in May.
Mr Dromgoole said: ”Normally I would think that Henry VIII would be box office poison but we seem to be living in a period of Tudor gold dust at the moment. There is something strange and magical about that time for us at the moment.”
