Henslowe writes: R at mvlo mulocko the 9 of Jenewary 1593 ... xxs
In modern English: Received at Muly Molocco, 9th January, 1593 ... 20 shillings
|1629 Portuguese illustration of the Battle of Alcazar|
As with yesterday's performance of The Spanish Tragedy, this second performance of Muly Molocco was a comedown after the huge audience the play had received when the company opened their new season with it last week. The company was now performing to a theatre that was more than half empty, suggesting once again that London may have been excited by the return of their plays, but not excited enough to see them so soon after.
