Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Hippodrome scores with another good sketch'. 'Hello' is based on adventures with a telephone. The parts are well acted - in particular, 'Bert Browne the tailor' is excellent. Mons. Slippere is a clevery blind pianist and sings 'Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep' exceptionally well. Myles and May are the 'merry huntsmen'. The Lurnis replaced the Cabiacs and sing some good medley songs. Adams and Ward bring the house down. Notice is given that such is the popularity of Mr. P. D. Elbourne, that friends are organising a presentation to him on the occasion of his forthcoming marriage in July, as a mark of their appreiciation. Mr. L. C. Lax is the treasurer of the fund, to which several stars and managers have already contributed.
