Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Tivoli - or as Mr. Barrasford wishes it to be know in future - The Hippodrome - has rarely had a better bill of fare than Mr. Owen offers this week'. Tom Edwards is a credit to Birmingham, his home city. He is far ahead of other ventriloquists with his act. Charles Morritt's 'find' - the blind man whom he discovered in the streets of Glasgow - gives an impressive memory turn, and is warmly applauded.
