Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Vesta Victoria sings 'Waiting at the Church', 'Men, men' and 'He introduced me to his Mother'. Picitt and Lizette end their illusion act with a simple but very mystifying disappearance. Le Diabelo rides a bicycle around thei inside rim of a large revolving wheel, and also on top of it. 'His coolness and pluck in the face of a couple of mishaps were not the least distinguishing feature of his daring performance'.
