Ballads and Performance: The Multimodal Stage in Early Modern England

"Ballads+: Staging the Jig in 'Romeo and Juliet'"

George Wither complains of “base fellows” who “bring forth a rhime, / A curtain jig, a libel, or a ballet / For fidlers, or some rogues with staff and wallet / To sing at [theater] doors.” “Satire III: Of Weakness,” quoted from Poems, 4 vols. (London, 1839), 1: 283.
