SIX on Broadway Information

Six is ruling the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway. Get your Six tickets on New York Theatre Guide today.

In the space of just a few short years, Six has grown from a 2017 Edinburgh Fringe production to become an international musical phenomenon, and like Hamilton, the show has burst out of the theatre bubble and into the mainstream.

The Sixmusical features the testimonies of the six ex-wives of British royal tyrant Henry VIII — told by the Queens themselves at a modern-day girl group concert. As the Queens dispute who should be the lead singer of the group, agreeing it should be whoever received the poorest treatment from their former husband, we are introduced to each member with scintillating solo numbers and a handful of gratifying group numbers to boot.

Each Queen is also inspired by present-day pop divas. While Catherine of Aragon carries herself like Queen B Beyoncé, Anne Boleyn rocks out more like a "Sk8er Boi"-era Avril Lavigne. The smooth tones of an Adele-esque Jane Seymour contrast nicely with Anna of Cleves, who gives us her best Nicki Minaj. And while Katherine Howard brings us seduction à la Britney Spears, the survivor Catherine Parr rounds out the group with a gravitas of Alicia Keyes.

The brainchild of Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss during their final year at Cambridge University, the pair wrote Six at 21 years old. Presented by Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, this fresh new musical caught the attention of producers Kenny Wax and Global Musicals, who would bring Six to the Arts Theatre in London's West End in December of that year. Its success snowballed from there, spurred on by the release of the original cast recording in September 2018, which earned the show a global following. Six toured the U.K. and later returned to the Arts Theatre for an open-ended London run.

The "little show that could" was honored with five Olivier Award nominations in 2019, including Best Musical in a category that also included Come From Away, Fun Home, and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.

Following a North American premiere in Chicago in May 2019, the U.S. cast toured to Cambridge, Massachusetts; Alberta, Canada; and St. Paul, Minnesota. The show shuttered temporarily on its would-be Broadway opening night in 2020, but its eventual 2021 premiere earned Six on Broadway eight Tony nominations and two wins, for Best Original Score and Best Costume Design of a Musical.   Don't miss out on Six in New York, a genre-defying, exhilarating historical musical with a pop-tastic score for the ages.

Our review

There is nothing I enjoy more than discovering a show and then going back to see it again (and again) with someone who has never seen it before. As someone who goes to the theatre for work, I view every night as a treasure hunt for the next theatrical crown jewel, and I love revisiting these gems time and again with friends and family. So when I saw a little show called Six for the first time in London's West End in 2019, I couldn't wait to evangelize about it and take everyone I know. When the...

Six

"Welcome to the show, to the histo-remix!" This line in the opening song of Six, "Ex-Wives," sets Six up perfectly. Six isn't a totally accurate historical reenactment of Tudor history.
