Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

There was much curiosity to see what Staley and Birbeck, announced as the greatest transformationists of the age had in store for the Tivoli Theatre of Varieties'. Their act was deemed to be the cleverest work of its kind ever seen in Birmingham. Charles Baron replaced the Hadj-Mohamed Troupe, and caused much merriment with his lion and feline burlesque.
