It was probably wartime conditions which slowed the progress of this enormous hit to the rest of the world but, when it did get to the other main theatrical centres, it thoroughly confirmed its Central-European success.
In France, as elsewhere, the piece has remained in the repertoire ever since. Less well made than its original, Blossom Time was, nevertheless, no less successful. It returned to Broadway at the Jolson Theater in 19 May and 8 March in Shubert seasons, was revived at its original home inagain in 4 September and once more at the 46th Street Theater in 26 December. Latterly, as in the case of The Student Princeits reputation suffered somewhat, simply from the number of Blossom Time productions and companies — often not of a very high standard — which wore a groove around the country and, eventually, it dropped exhaustedly out of the repertoire.

She was forced to sell up when it went out of favour. My mother now Heiderl Und Hederl Und Hannerl Tschöll - Various - Im Weißen Rössl - Das Dreimäderlhaus and living in th UK was delighted to hear and be reminded of Berte the success of his operetta.
