Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

My Japanese Cherry Blossom' has been so well received at another hall, that it is now at the Tivoli and Hippodrome. 'It is slight, but picturesque'. It is based round the well-known American song of the same title. There are several pretty girls in the cast, and the troubles of the Hon Marmaduke Spratley are made much of by Gus Le Clerq.
