Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Mr. Barrasford has accepted a place on the board at the Palace, Manchester. This week he has provided expensive and attractive entertainment at the Hippodrome. Launce Elliott has now left the amateur ranks. His 'artistic poses and examples of muscular prowess create surprise and delight'. Jen Latona is a local young lady. Princess Pocahontas' performance continues to improve. At one point she holds a note for so long that the audience wonders whether it is instrumental rather than vocal.
