Subject:        Q: Red Lion
 
I'm working on a review of a book which asserts that The Theatre, built in
1576, was the first public theatre in Elizabethan England.  But recent
research has shown convincingly (to my mind, at least) that the Red Lion was
built some nine years earlier.  To my knowledge, no one has disputed these
findings.  Before I suggest in print that the author didn't do his homework,
however, I thought I'd better do MY homework -- does anyone on the list know
of a serious (recent) study which contends The Theatre held more than a sort
of metaphoric primacy?
