Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Vesta Victoria had some new songs, but it was clear from the orchestra playing the opening bars of "It's all right in the summer time" that this was what the audience were waiting for. Mdlle de Rose has a remarkable voice, and one of the songs "The Wolf" is very difficult in the deep notes. Madge Berry is probably new to Birmingham, but is a clever actress, singer and mimic, and is one of the most pleasing acts in the programme
