Not a question but a brief recommendation: If you get the chance (and you can get tickets), this summer's productions at the Globe of Midsummer Night's Dream and Taming of the Shrew are NOT to be missed. I'm a Shakespeare nerd and I spent my birthday at the Globe this year, standing for a matinee of TotS and sitting with my wife for Midsummer. I can honestly say that they were two of the best live performances I have ever seen in my life of any sort.
Small advice and/or warning: Midsummer is naughty and there is a high amount of (ahem) audience interaction. If this doesn't interest you, perhaps give it a pass. If it does interest you, get standing tickets and aim for one of the tables up front.
