In an earlier interview last March, Leandra Ellis-Gaston, the actor portraying Anne Boleyn, highlights the show's commitment to inclusivity and community equality:
"It's vital that when viewers come to experience the show, they see full-figured women, they witness darker-skinned women like myself, they take note of an array of ethnicities included… If art can't depict what is taking place right now in the world, it ceases to be authentic art. [Our show is a] musical that inspires individuals to develop a new perspective, a musical venture that allows folks to recognize that their expression carries weight."
