Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Colberg Family are clever musicians, but it is their midget conductor who causes much amusement by his assumption of self-importance. Harry Brown sings 'Nobody' and 'A'm Satisfied' with much success. Lind gives his female impersonatins with marvelous make-up; and astonishes members of the audience who haven't seen him before when he pulls off his wig and speaks in a deep bass voice. Lottie Lennox sings 'Ain't it nice to have a father'.
