Read Narrative
The Stage, 17 and 24 July 1919, listed Bubbly as On Tour from 21 July at the R., Worthing. ‘What delightful entertainment is provided by Bubbly, the musical production which has been secured by the Management of the Theatre for the whole of the present week. It possesses novel elements, and is quite different from anything else we have seen. Much cleverness has been exhibited in its construction, with the result that a veritable feast of enjoyment is furnished. There are no fewer than eleven “bubbles” in the two acts, and nothing more acceptable of the lighter form of entertainment has been seen here for a very long time. There is no consecutive plot, but a series of episodes, among the most diverting of which are the burlesque dramas, Old Bill on his return to civil life, and “The Comforts of Home.” The book is by J. Hastings Turner and the music by Philip Braham, and the production sparkles from beginning to end. The piece is now in the third year of its tour, and Mr. Ralph Haslam has provided it with a splendid setting, the Company now in possession of the Theatre being under the direction of Mr. Augustus Bingham ... Bubbly is most admirably placed upon the stage, and so mirthful a form of entertainment deserves to secure a succession of large and appreciative audiences’ (Worthing Gazette, 23 July 1919).
