The musical premiered on 3 December 1930 at the newly-renovated Adelphi Theatre, London. The production was produced by Charles B. Cochran and directed by Frank Collins with choreography by Buddy Bradley and Billy Pierce. It stared dancer Jessie Matthews (who played both the mother and the daughter in the piece) and comedian Sonnie Hale, who married her the next year. It also featured Joyce Barbour and Jean Cadell. The lavish production was noted for the production piece "Dancing on the Ceiling" that used London's first a revolving stage. In this, the two stars danced around a chandelier that was standing up from the floor simulating the ceiling. Matthews took "Dancing on the Ceiling" as her signature tune. The show was Matthews' biggest stage success and led to her famous movie career.
The musical garnered critical and box office success, running for 254 performances. The show was adapted into a successful 1934 film also starring Matthews.
