Actually, a [n actor playing a] character called Juliet said it in a
play by Shakespeare -- not quite the same thing.

Picky, picky, picky ...

If Hardy might indulge me.

There appears to be a lack of close textual analysis by some posters in
response to my remarks about the Globe and a rose. For the avoidance of
doubt, I made no attribution to nationality in the former case and was
reporting an event, not posing a question, in the latter. Conjecture
-another bane of this list - about snobbishness may very well be correct
however my ire about  painted Maypoles hogging front stage has little
(!) to do with my temperament and everything to do with my dwarfish
stature.

So there!

The evidence seems to be that (on the whole) the original audiences were
fairly well behaved (most of the time).
