POSTCARD FROM LONDON: IMPOSSIBILITIES
So much in life happens because one person has a vision, and the will to realize that vision no matter how impossible it may seem.
The recreated Globe Shakespeare Theatre in London exists today because actor Sam Wanamaker had a vision. From the Globe’s website: “In 1970 Sam founded the Shakespeare Globe Trust….the final attempt to build a faithful recreation of Shakespeare’s Globe close to its original Bankside, Southwark location…. While many had said that the Globe reconstruction was impossible to achieve, he had persevered for over twenty years, overcoming a series of monumental obstacles.”
Wanamaker died before the theater was finished, as Henry Folger died before his dream, The Folger Shakespeare Library, was complete.
