Pop-up Globe NZ Tour


After playing to over 600,000 people across Australasia in just three years, Auckland’s smash-hit sensation Pop-up Globe has hit the road in New Zealand for the first time, taking their critically-acclaimed productions of Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Measure for Measure to theatres around the nation.

Our travelling company are about half way through their nationwide tour, having played to sell out houses, and great acclaim from critics and patrons alike:

“Relish the full-blooded stuff of which theatrical dreams are made.” – The Press, Christchurch

“Physical, high energy, bawdy confection that’s anchored by powerful performances.” – Theatrereview.co.nz Christchurch

“We sat on the stage and felt part of the Play “Measure for Measure” yesterday evening. Absolutely fabulous! We love it! Thank you Pop up Globe. Looking forward to “Hamlet” tonight! How lucky we are in Nelson, to have their brilliant company include us on their tour!” – Feedback from social media

Both productions feature stunning bespoke Jacobean costumes, a specially-designed touring set that recreates the beautiful scenic design of Pop-up Globe Auckland, and the extraordinary lively performances of Shakespeare’s masterworks by a highly-experienced cast of local and international actors from around the world.

Experience the “show-stopping” (NZ Herald) Moulin Rouge, Shakespeare-style in the wild comedy Measure for Measure, or witness the “theatrical triumph (Broadway World NZ) Hamlet, in a night full of revenge, grief, madness and catharsis culminating in a breathtaking duel in the blood-drenched finale.
