In 1973, R. Thad Taylor renovated this post-war warehouse into a perfect half-replica of Shakespeare's Old Globe. Thad continued to run The Globe Playhouse under, and with the support of, the American Shakespeare Society for almost 35 years. Financial difficulties forced Taylor to give up producing his own plays in 1990, but he rented the theater space for plays produced by others. One of the most successful plays to run at the Globe Playhouse was "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" in 1998, a one-woman show starring Nia Vardalos, who also starred in the popular movie version in 2002.
In 2008 the theatre was renamed the MACHA Theater and now, it's been completely reimagined as The 11:11.
