M.O. Round 3 - Glory_Forever vs Stuart Delahay
About this creation
Round 3 entry for the MocOlympics
My opponent Stuart Delahay
Quote: Et Tu, Brute?

For my entry I built the Globe Theater. This was the theater where William Shakespeare first introduced the play Julius Caesar which is where this quote comes from. Some background info you might like to know:

-The first Globe Theater was built in England around 1598.
-The design was based on a Roman amphitheater so that all of the occupants could see the performance.
-It could fit almost 1500 people, with just as many mingling on the outside for a total of 3000.
-It was destroyed two times(once by fire and the second time when it was officially closed and demolished).
-The latest Globe Theater was completed in 1996.

I tried to make the first version of the theater as historically accurate as possible (within my brick supply and time given), from the two doors in which the actors emerged, to the three levels for seating, to the straw hatch roof. Good luck to Stuart and all of the M.O contestants!

Preparations for the play have started…


Shakespeare meets with some of the actors to rehearse their lines.


People from all walks of life attended the play but it would cost them! Money was collected in a box as they entered and brought to the back. After the play, the actors, owners and shareholders got paid. This is where we get the term “box office”.


Wait…where is the black flag? This is supposed to be a tragedy”
(A colored flag flying from the rooftops was the theaters way of advertising. Red meant history, black for tragedy, and white for comedy)

Thats got to be heavy!

Plenty of seats left.

“Fast forward to Act III,Scene I

Close up.

Above view.


Shocked Noblemen.

Assassins closing in.

This wealthy couple payed five pennies to sit in the balcony.

Angry Senators(I spent a ton of time on those togas).

The closest view in the house...but also the smelliest.



Gentlemen look on..

Shakespeare thinks about his next play.

This Roman soldier had hoped to see Julius Caesar become Rome's dictator.

Marcus Brutus was one of many senators who helped carry out Caesar's assassination.


Caesar delivering his famous line," Et Tu, Brute? (Even you, Brutus?)


After the show..

Shakespeare congratulates Caesar.

William Shakespeare went on to write 36 more plays.

Knowing the Globe Theatre pretty well, I'd give this a 10/10 for accuracy. Nice work.

And I thought my idea to build the Globe Theatre was original! I guess great minds think alike. A spectacular build, sir!

Just looked down at Deus' comment about ten likes down, and there was a little thing about what "Et tu, Brute" actually means. Well, literally it means "And you Brutus?" [Et (and) tu (you), Brute (Brutus)] However, becasue we don't talk like that in English anymore, we just change up the 'and' to mean somehting more powerful. (i.e. "you too, Brutus", "Even you, Brutus", "Also you, Brutus," etc.) Awesome Julius Caesar by the way.

Glory, phenomenal is an understatement. It's rare that such grandeur is able to be replicated out of LEGO; this is one of those few examples. There is a lot of emotion and power being conveyed by the minifigs, everything from their outfits to their facial expressions contributes so much. An outstanding MOC, and best of luck in round 4!

And again you got my vote. All in all an impressive presentation with a clean build, accurate details and interesting facts. Your work on the minifigs is as impressive as techniques like the one with the red curtain for example.

Wow Noah! This is sure to give Stu every bit of a run for his brick! You may be relatively new to MOCpages but I sense you are not new to MOCing at all. A fantastic build, this will help keep the judges awake at night! Awesome! ~Thoy

I especially appreciate the curtain effects. One question though: if I remember correctly, should there be a pair of pillars on the stage? Regardless, you've created a large and impressive replica of Shaekspeare's world.

Quoting Deus Otiosus Isn't it "you too, Brutus"?
It can be translated in many different ways like "you too, Brutus","And you, Brutus?",Thou too Brutus", etc. Thanks guys for your comments.

Curse these blasted MOCpage glitches. Anyhow, I think this is about my 4th comment so far, so lets hope this one doesn't get lost as well. Great work mate! One of the best of the round to be sure. Whenever I heard the categories, I really wished I had yours because I would've done a very similar idea as you did. Thankfully I didn't get that category, so you can blow us away!
