SIX

Six reopens at 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 explosively out of the theatre bubble and into the mainstream.

Six tells the testimonies of the six ex-wives of British royal tyrant Henry VIII through the medium of a modern-day girl group concert. As the queens dispute who should be the lead singer of the group, agreeing it should be the one amongst them who 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. Whilst 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 the seductive à la Britney Spears, the survivor Catherine Parr rounds out the group with a gravitas of one Alicia Keyes.

The brainchild of Toby Marlow during his final year at Cambridge University, he and his collaborator Lucy Moss wrote Six at the tender age of 21. 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, and Six toured the UK extensively 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 US cast would tour to the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre in Alberta, Canada, and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Don’t miss out on Six, a genre-defying, exhilarating historical musical with a poptastic score for the ages.

Tickets to Six are available now. Book your tickets today.

Our Six 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.
