Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Hippodrome was crowded the night the reviewer saw the show - 'the second house could not be got in until after the show had started'. Emma Don does boy parts well, and is supported by a comical lot of coons who 'chorus in good style'. De Biere the mysterious, is a clever juggler and amuses the audience with his tricks, and also in the explanation of how it is done.
