Danny Kaye was a big American star and this performance sold out. One lucky audience member wrote a letter to the Birmingham Post with his memories of the performance.
‘My wife, her two sisters and I queued all night to get tickets…Most of the usherettes stayed on duty all night and we were able to get a cup of tea and biscuits…I can only say that the waiting to get tickets was worth all the discomfort. The artist himself was superb and held the audience captivated’.
