20 Nov 1916 The Bing Boys Are HereProfessional
Read Narrative
'‘“The Bing Boys are Here” promises to be a success at the Theatre Royal next week quite beyond the ordinary. Already the demand for seats is great. Certainly the “Bing Boys” took the fancy of London, and with Mr. George Robey and Mr. Alfred Lester in the principal male parts, and Miss Violet Loraine as “leading lady,” it was not to be wondered at. And there is this special quality about the “Bing Boys” - it provides the chief artistes with every possible chance. Individual eccentricities are allowed full play, so that given the right people in the right parts it can scarcely fail with the average audience ... Some of the songs are particularly attractive, notably the duet between “Emma” and “Lucifer,” “If you were the only Boy in the World,” and the Four Wards (glee singers) are distinctly good, and deservedly popular. The piece is brightly mounted and the dresses are charming’. Bournemouth Graphic, 17 November 1916.
