Subject:    Blackfriars Theatre Floorplans

While I can find many floorplans, diagrams, and estimates of dimensions (many 
due to C. W. Hodges)  of the original Globe Theatre(s) that stood in 
Shakespeare's days, it seems much more difficult to find information about the 
Blackfriars Theatre. I'm wondering if anyone might be able to point me to books, 
journals, or other references that may shed light on the historical consensus of 
what the original Blackfriars might have "looked" like, or perhaps send me 
scans, or perhaps detailed photography of the current Blackfriars Theatre.

Thanks,
Ina Centaur
