Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Harry Ford sings "It's a shame" and "The money I suppose I shall never have". Kweery defies a group from the audience to find out how the illusion is done, and 'leaves plenty for the imagination'. Mr. Harry Hamilton, new manager at the Hippodrome is unwell with a pulmonary complaint.
