If you're not thinking of "The Roaring Girl," could she be referred to
in "Greene's Tu Quoque, or The City Gallant"?  I somehow associate her
with one of those comedies with a brothel scene--and I realize that
leaves the door wide open (city comedy + brothel scene).

The main play for the query below is Middleton and Dekker's The Roaring
Girl. I believe Moll Cutpurse also makes a brief appearance in Nathan
Field's Amends for Ladies.

This is a quote from Carl Miller, Stages of Desire: Gay Theatre's Hidden
History (Cassell 1996):

"As well as _The Roaring Girl_, first performed in 1610, she is presumed
to be the title figure of the play _Mad Pranks of Merry Moll of the
Bankside_ by John Day in the same year. In 1612 she appears as a
character in Nathan Field's play _Amends for Ladies_, and is herself in
court for real, accused, among other things, of performing on stage."
