Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

An excellent selection of American artistes this week. Ellie Shields sings "Someone is waiting for me", "Just as the sun went down" and "Alexander" in an unforgettable voice. Grant and Grant sing "Emancipation Day". Brown and Nevarro sing "I wonder what makes it snow", and then reappear as two Chinese in a love making scene 'which is quite new here'. "A Matrimonial Agency" requires tricky orchestral work, and receives well-deserved applause.
