Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The acts this week are mostly of the vaudeville kind, as many singers are employed elsewhere in pantomime. The Macagno's pranks in a French restaurant are very amusing; Iven Oden is very adept in performing upside-down, and the de Lucca brothers perform their acrobatics in evening dress.
