Milla,
 
Try calling Gail Gibson at Davidson College.  (I don't think she's on either
SHAKSPER or PERFORM.)  She did some terrific work on medieval Jewish stage
stereotypes in her dissertation, which I've seen, though it's not in print.

Then you MUST MUST MUST contact Jim Shapiro (Columbia University)!
