I "know" because I read it in the program of the Shakes & Co. production 
of "Tamer" I saw and reviewed this summer, and because there were 
references to paired productions over a number of years in reviews I 
read of UK productions and in on line accounts of Fletcher's play and 
its production history.

But reviewers and directors (including me, I admit) don't generally cite 
primary sources.   It wouldn't be the first time we have accepted and 
passed along pseudo-information.   I eagerly await the True Facts and 
their provenance.

Does anyone have an opinion on the Riverside editor's note to Ind. i. 
88?  The Lord recalls an earlier performance by one of the players as 'a 
farmer's eldest son'; the player replies, 'I think 'twas Soto that your 
honor means.' The note runs, 'A character of this name, with a role like 
that described by the Lord, appears in Fletcher's "Women Pleased", but 
since that play was first acted around 1620, the reference here must 
either be a late addition or point to a much earlier play on which 
Fletcher's play was based.'

Any takers for a revised Induction?

Tom
