The musical debuted in the West End at the Piccadilly Theatre on 6 November 1972, under the direction of John Schlesinger, but proved a flop, running only for three months, 120 performances. British actress Polly James performed the role of Victoria opposite Sven-Bertil Taube as her husband Prince Albert.[1] Lewis Fiander and Aubrey Woods had featured roles. Sarah Brightman made her stage debut in 1973 in this musical, as Vicky, the queen's eldest daughter, and a street waif, at age 13. Also in the cast was Simon Gipps-Kent as a young Prince Edward ("Bertie"), a role he would later reprise for television in Edward the Seventh.

The musical made its North American Premiere at ArtPark in Lewiston, New York in the summer of 1985. The production was directed by Brother Augustine Towey, C.M. and starred Barbara Marineau as Victoria. Charles Strouse was the creative advisor on the production.[2]

The musical has not been performed on Broadway.
