Initially when the musical was presented, the style was adopted from that of the 1920s till the 1940s’ era. The acts were kept simple while the humor had a very risqué quality to it. It was in the following year that the story was reshaped when it had to be presented at the Toronto Fringe Festival. At this point, Bob Martin joined the team of the co-writers along with Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. It was him who added the infamous piece of the "Man in the Chair"; a narrator who was present at the side of the stage to describe the story. After the show at the Toronto Fringe Festival, the presentation was approached by financer David Mirvish, who decided to take on an expanded production that would run in the Theatre Passe Muraille from the year 1999. It opened to great reviews and ran till 2001; when Mirvish decided to invest further to bring to the stage a full fledged theatrical show. The musical was presented in the Winter Garden Theatre that could cater to a thousand audience members. During this, Mirvish also invited prominent producers, Paul Mack and Kevin McCollum to watch the show, who after being impressed by the story line and decided to become co-investors.

The producer decides to help them sabotage Janet’s marriage by manipulating Aldolpho into seducing Janet, so that they can break up the marriage.
Whilst Aldolpho is on his way to the bride’s room, the audiences come across Robert who is getting anxious about the marriage.
