Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Professor Duncan and his collies were the first to introduce the scene of the widow and the funeral. They have had the honour of appearing before royalty, and are loudly applauded each night. Mr. Cuccas' illusion 'Robing the Robe' is as mysterious as was Miss Moto a few weeks ago.
