Henshaw & Ten Broeck in "The Nabobs"
Last Night -- "Ole Olson" Next Week.
A large audience enjoyed the second appearance of John E. Henshaw and May Ten Broeck in "The Nabobs" at the opera house last night. Miss Ten Broeck has become rather too portly for a stage fairy but Henshaw was just at [sic] funny as ever. His support was much better than at his first performance of "The Nabobs" here, and the play has been greatly improved in many respects. The singing, including solos, duets, quartetts and choruses, were all excellent, and the dancing and other specialties were very entertaining.
John was shown in the 1905 city directory of Plymouth, Massachusetts:9
