Reviews

The Winter Garden is on the site of the old horse exchange. Judging by the smell of last night's show, things haven't changed much. (Unidentified writer, 21st March 1911)

 

Among the very best features were those provided by the two unctuous ragtime comedians, Miss Stella Mayhew and Mr Al Jolson, both of whom had good songs and the dialects and the acting ability to deliver every bit of good that was in them. (Adolph Klauber, New York Times)
