Subject:        Red Lion

Could someone tell me if we know that the Red Lion, built in 1567, was a
purpose-built theatre-I have often read that money was paid for
scaffolding and a stage, and am not sure whether this means that it is,
or isn't quite, the first public theatre in England.  Following on from
that, are we certain that it was able to be used as a theatre?

With thanks in advance,

John Lee
