Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

One does not usually look for an exciting bill of fare in the week after the Whitsun holidays, but the entertainment at the Tivoli is full of good things'. Clarice Netta is 'decidedly pleasing'. Frank Latona has now included Miss Jennie in his act, which was now greatly improved, and the pair got loud applause. The other star turn was the Nightons whose graceful athletic and acrobatic act went down well.
