Subject:        Origin of Joke About Hamlet Sleeping with Ophelia/Horatio

This is to ask the name of the director who is credited with having
replied to the question, "Was Hamlet sleeping with Ophelia?" with "In my
company always,...when he wasn't sleeping with Horatio."

Also: If this anecdote is documented, where might I find it?
