About the showDivorced, beheaded… Live!
After a sold-out London premiere at the Arts Theatre earlier in the year, Lucy Moss and Toby Marlow’s smash-hit new musical SIX returns to the West End for a sensational new run, before embarking on a limited UK tour. Spinning the well-known history of Henry VIII and his six wives on its head, the show follows the fate of each wife.
SIX sees the ill-fated Tudor queen transform into pop princesses desperate to grab the mic and tell their own version of events. Singing their way out of the history books and onto the stage, the hilarious show features a raucous score, including tunes such as “Ex Wives”, “Haus of Holbein” and “Don’t Lose Ur Head”.
Originally enjoying success at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, SIX attracted the attention of producers Kenny Wax and Global Musicals, who gave the musical its London premiere. Beginning life with the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society, the show initially earned a Best Musical Award nomination from blog Musical Theatre Review.
Casting includes Jarneia Richard-Noel as Catherine of Aragon, Millie O'Connell as Anne Boleyn, Natalie Paris as Jane Seymour, Alexia McIntosh as Anne of Cleves, Aimie Atkinson as Katherine Howard and Maiya Quansah-Breed as Catherine Parr.
Directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, SIX features set design by Emma Bailey and costume design by Gabriella Slade. A play-come-pop-concert, the show remixes hundred of years of heartbreak into a sassy one hour performance that perfectly suits 21st century audiences.
A hilarious, irreverent new musical set against the backdrop of one of British history’s most notorious eras, SIX plays at the Arts Theatre from August 30th to September 23rd 2018, with a gala night on September 6th 2018.
