Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Several of the acts are new to Birmingham. Julia Karen is a 'shapely and intrepid trapeze performer'. Burley and Crelley are as clever with their tumbling as with their patter. The Donaldson Brothers and Ardel are 'quite a company of comedians and amuse greatly with their imitations and oddities in a zoo'.
