"I'm sure other members of the community will be more knowledgeable 
about playhouse concessions than I, but I would focus on the building 
contracts for playhouses. For example, in the initial contract for the 
Rose playhouse, Philip Henslowe gives exclusive rights to sell food and 
drink at the playhouse to an investor named John Cholmley."

Does anyone know if John Cholmley was related to the scumbag Richard 
Cholmley, who was mentioned in Richard Baines' infamous Note to the 
Privy Council regarding Christopher Marlowe's alleged heretical statements?

There may be something of interest in my "John Heminges's tap-house at 
the Globe" Theatre Notebook 55 (2001): 72-77.

There's are free copies in my employer's Institutional Repository and on 
my own website. Google will find them from the title.
