Shakespeare's Globe - Voter's Choice
About Voter's Choice
‘Thy frank election make’
All’s Well That Ends Well, Act II, scene 3
This summer, in a first for Shakespeare’s Globe, we're giving audiences the chance to vote for which play they want to see on the night: The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew or Twelfth Night.
We know that in Shakespeare’s day the choice of play or entertainment was left to the most powerful person of the household, so in keeping with tradition, we are putting the choice of play back into the hands of the most powerful members of our house: the audience.
We will have four ‘Voter’s Choice’ performances in the Globe Theatre: just before the performance is due to begin, audiences will vote for the play they want to see, and once the collective decision has been made, the performance will start straight away.
