You might want to consult the American Shakespeare Center here:

http://www.americanshakespearecenter.com/

ASC claims to manage "the world's only re-creation of Shakespeare's original 
indoor theatre," and I am sure before building this theater all that can be 
known about the original Blackfriar's was explored.

The company does fine Shakespeare, too, into the bargain.

Have you tried Erwin Smith's 577 page book on Shakespeare's Blackfriars 
Playhouse? There is also Richard Hosley's reconstruction in The Revels History 
of Drama in English, volume III which includes Richard Southern's version.

PS: I forgot to add that photos of the American Shakespeare Center's actual 
reconstruction of the Blackfriars in Staunton, VA, are available on at web site 
or in Google Images.
