Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Hippodrome management 'leave no stone unturned in order to secure talent that is at once novel and popular'. With Mr. Barrasford 'price is no object'. The star turn is the seven Piccihanis - five female and two male acobats. The hit of the evening are Jack and Evelyn, 'whose act, while not new, is very smart'.
