‘After a run of pantomime and revue, a variety programme is presented this week at the Empire Theatre, Newcastle. There is a fresh introduction to “Old Bill” of “The Better ‘Ole” fame in a one-act sketch entitled “The Johnson ‘Ole”; but the audience did not seem to respond to the humour of it as they did to the earlier production in war time by Capt. Bruce Bairnsfather. Most people wish to forget the war, and so they are not easily interested now by trench episodes on the stage. Mr. Harry Thurston plays his original part of Old Bill’. Newcastle Daily Chronicle, 11 February 1919.
