Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Someone called 'Fire' on Monday night for no reason. Mr. Elbourne and the staff are to be congratulated on they way they calmed a part of the audience who were panicked by this. 'The public will be grateful of this evidence of alertness on the part of the Hippodrome management'.
