Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Mdlle Diana's mirror dance was the best ever seen in Birmingham as the curtain fell on the shower of rain behind which was her beautifully lit representation of a lily. The burning clothes in her Joan of Arc pose were cleverly represented by the loose ends and tatters being fanned upwards from below the stage, in lurid flame light. The verdict was 'a wonderfully ingenious as well as graceful exhibition'.
