Comment:        Re: SHK 13.1002 Billy Connolly at The Globe

I don't know the program in which the following was said:

>He approached in a river-boat, and told us that this was how many of >the theatre-goers would have arrived.

There is a fair amount of evidence for it. See, for example, the
Middleton pamphlet The Ant and the Nightingale. I don't have the passage
with me, or else I quote it.
