Six co-creator Toby Marlow stepped in to appear in the musical last night after illness struck the show’s cast.
Marlow, who co-wrote the musical about Henry VIII’s wives with Lucy Moss, played Catherine Parr in a concert version of the show on July 28.
Before the evening’s performance at London’s Arts Theatre, the production announced that due to illness and injury, the scheduled cast of the show was unable to appear, meaning extra performers were drafted in at the last minute to enable it to go ahead.
Marlow joined the cast along with former company member Genesis Lynea to perform in a concert version.
Following the performance, Marlow praised his fellow cast members and backstage team at the Arts Theatre “for working together so amazingly today to make sure we could put on a show”, and thanked the audience “for being so cool about the concert performance and cast changes”.
