I am not aware of anyone suggesting that Westminster Hall was ever used 
for the production of plays.  In any case, the residential apartments of 
the Palace of Westminster were destroyed by fire in 1512 and it ceased 
to be a royal residence.  Hence, of course, Henry VIII's eagerness to 
take over Wolsey's Whitehall Palace.
