Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Hippodrome, which is to say the Tivoli, does not appear to have suffered from its change of name. The audiences are as large as ever, and the matinees which are a speciality of the house, are popular'. Vesta Victoria's songs include one about a country girl in London; a Chinese song and dance; the story of a motor car accident; and the inevitable Grace Darling. The Brothers Laure 'silence and fun' act is as clever as it is funny.
