When this production opened in September 2018 at the Arts Theatre in London, Fiona Mountford in the London Evening Standard said: "This is quite the most uplifting piece of new British musical theatre I have ever had the privilege to watch and the fact that it comes from two 23-year-olds, Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who graduated only last year, is even more delightful." Immediately prior to London, this production was staged at the Underbelly in Edinburgh in August 2018 when Ann Treneman in the Times praised it as being "sassy, funny, sexy and funky," adding that, in "this show, professionally sung and danced, but with a revue vibe... girl power has become queen power, from beyond the grave. It's uncomplicated gig theatre with a four-strong female band on stage playing for most of the 75 minutes." Dominic Cavendish in the Daily Telegraph commented that, "to some extent, you could say that the 75-minute theatre-meets-pop event does indeed speak most to the selfie-taking, mobile-jabbing teenager or tweenager. It's the opposite of a composed, scholarly account of those benighted Tudor brides... the grand surprise, though, is just how gloriously - persuasively - coherent, confident and inventive the whole thing is," and which has "a dynamism that matches the best the West End has to offer."

Danielle Steers' London theatre credits include the ensemble cast in Josie Rourke's revival of the Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields' musical Sweet Charity at the Donmar Warehouse in 2019; the role of 'Zahara' in Jay Scheib's production Jim Steinman's musical Bat Out Of Hell at the London Coliseum in 2017, and Dominion Theatre in 2018; and the ensemble in the original cast of Marc Bruni's production of Douglas McGrath's Carole King musical Beautiful at the Aldwych Theatre in 2015.

Sophie Isaacs' London theatre credits include playing the title role of 'Goldilocks' in Michael Harrison's pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the London Palladium in 2019; and 'Heather McNamara' in Andy Fickman's production of the Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy musical Heathers at the Haymarket Theatre in 2018.

Natalie Paris' London theatre credits include playing the role of 'Louise' in Sam Buntrock's revival of Stephen Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2005, and West End transfer to the Wyndham's Theatre in 2006.

COVID-19 restrictions where then reintroduced, forcing the West End season at the Lyric Theatre to close early on Tuesday 15 December 2020.
