Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Hippodrome stalls have had to be enlarged due to the crowds flocking to the theatre. The right hand stage box has already gone - now the left one has been taken away. Even so, many were standing at the sides the night the reviewer attended. John Tiller's pantomime Aladdin has Bessie Cohen in the title role. Other parts were well played, particularly a comical little man 'Little Briton' causing much amusement. The Brothers Ashley's sketch, set in a barber's shop gives them the opportunity to show off their boxing skills.
