Odessa is recognized as the center of oil exploration and production in Texas, but the city has a number of attractions that have nothing to do with oil and gas. Of particular interest are the replicas of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and Anne Hathaway's Cottage on the campus of Odessa College.Built in the 1960's, The Globe Theatre is a non-profit organization presenting classical and modern plays using an Elizabethan stage. Bringing a bit of British flair to the West Texas landscape, this replica of the original Globe Theatre, the home of William Shakespeare's acting company in England, is enhanced by its surrounding Writer's Garden and a replica of Shakespear's wife, Anne Hathaway's Cottage. The 410-seat octagonal theatre was the brain child of a local teacher and Shakespearean scholar, Mrs. Marjorie Morris, who wanted a proper showcase in which to showcase the Bard's plays. The Globe hosts community theatre performances, a monthly music show, as well as other great community acivities.

Often I'd seen The Globe from the outside but really wasn't that bothered to venture inside. How wrong was I! It is so worth a visit. We took a tour at the end of the day and saw all around this amazing space. Our guide...More

New carpet, new seats, and other new decor look so awesome. Kudos to Odessa College and the donors for giving some much needed love to this important space. The opening show this season, The Crucible, has a great venue to live in!

I saw As You Like It here and it was wonderful. Actors were great, seats were all good and they were having a renaissance festival out in the courtyard. Really fun time. Will definitely come again.

This place is really cool to go watch a play, they are not always open and doing some construction right now, but it is very nice and a great place to see while you are in Odessa

Yes, and it is not super bad, you can still go and enjoy it even today, but it looks almost completed to me... I will try to find out more info on it for July and get back to you as I live here...
