5 November, 1595 - The Wonder of a Woman

Here's what the Admiral's Men performed at the Rose playhouse on this day, 424 years ago...

Henslowe writes: ye 4 of novmbȝ 1595 ... R at the wonder of a womon ... xxvijs 

In modern English: [5th] November, 1595 ... Received at The Wonder of a Woman ... 27 shillings.

Fame (early 1630s)
Today, the Admiral's Men revived The Wonder of a Woman. You can read more about this lost play in the entry for 16 October.

This is the third performance of The Wonder of a Woman, and although its box office is a little better than last week, it still shows a lack of enthusiasm for this new play.
