Side Note: A Play about Marlowe...  
Apparently there is a play about Marlowe written in '92 by Peter Whelan, called "The School of Night." It's just premiering in the US and there was a write up in the L.A. Times, which is how I heard about it. Review isn't promising, but I may try and see it, if I can...

Theatre, one of the joys of life... And at $20 a ticket, not bad!

Saw and enjoyed "The School of Night." Had a different take on all the conspiracies and who was spying for whom and double-crossing whom, and why. Had an answer to who the Dark Lady was. Had naken Marlowe, Marlowe doing some sword-fighting and Marlowe kissing Shakespeare, so worth the admission just for that. Great costumes.
