Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

W.C. Fields was a 'tramp' juggler who excited wonder and merriment with his act, and may well have been the best performer in this art. Kelly and Gillette were excellent acrobats, and their knockabouts could only be described as undescribable! Carlotta Levey, formerly part of the Sisters Levey, sang two songs and gave two encores.
