Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Japanese Okabe family show remarkable feats of balancing and agility. Fred Cary sings and pulls faces in an extraordinary way. Alexandra tells of the difficulty she had in buying a railway ticket, and also yodels. Mdlle Morcashani's 'buxom appearance and lively songs, pleases'.
