In early February they were in Virginia, the reviews were mixed. Critics thought the whole thing lacked cohesion, and they complained the dancing was too "muscular", not enough foot work. But José was getting kudos for his dancing.

Then they started to make the return trip North. On April 1 they were at the Town Theater in Columbia, SC.
On April 8, The Waco News Tribune reported that Babe Hanrick would travel with Mama Hanrick from Norfolk, VA, to New York, an overnight trip on a steamship.
The Land of Joy troupe did one more show at the Liberty Theater in Fort Monroe, VA on April 12.
Babe Hanrick married José Reachi at the Holy Trinity Church, on West 82nd Street in the Upper West Side in New York on April 22, 1925. Babe was 17 years old, and Ramón was 22. It was front-page news in the hometown paper.
They went promptly back to work to Pennsylvania, for the last leg of the Land of Joy revue.

Babe probably got her new nickname after Mary Pickford’s famous silent film of 1923.
Paul Dupont composed a Tango for that movie that was very popular.
An Evening at The Patio was a much smaller revue than The Land of Joy, the troupe was less than 10 performers. From August 10 though August 12 they came to New York, and appeared at Keith’s Orpheum in Brooklyn (Fulton and Rockwell). On August 22 they were at Proctor's Theater in Harlem (125th Street at Park Av.).
