List of reviews

A Private Wire [companion piece to Iolanthe

  • Musical World 1883 April 21 61(16): 241 col. 2 
    A Private Wire, written by Messrs Arnold Felix and Frank Desprez, with music from the pen of Mr Percy Reeve, is a "vaudeville," now preceding Iolanthe at the Savoy. The complications of the plot are ingenious, and the songs are prettily written, while the acting is safe in the hands of Misses Louis Brandram and Gray, and Messrs Rowan and Eric Lewis.
  • The Era 1883 April 7 45(2324): 7, col. 2 THE LONDON THEATRES. THE SAVOY. Unsigned review
