About the showHenry VIII’s ex-wives will finally grace the stage again as SIX transfers to the Lyric Theatre for a socially-distanced 11-week run. The empowering pop musical is bringing history to London in more ways than one, as it becomes the first musical to return to the West End after COVID-19 shut down theatres in March.
Inspired by the unhappy tale of Henry VIII’s wives, SIX hands the mic over to Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn and their successors - and they have a lot to say. With songs including “Haus of Holbein” and “Don’t Lose Ur Head” inspired by modern pop princesses Beyoncé, Adele and Lily Allen, the musical is a hilarious and gutsy histo-remix which brings the 15th century right up to date.
The cast of SIX at the Lyric Theatre includes Jarnéia Richard-Noel, Courtney Bowman, Natalie Paris, Alexia McIntosh, Sophie Isaacs, Danielle Steers, Zara Macintosh, Cherelle Jay, Hana Stewart and Collette Guitart.
The show features a book, music and lyrics by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, and is directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage. The creative team also includes choreographer Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set designer Emma Bailey and costume designer Gabriella Slade.
Bringing a whole new meaning to “the rule of six”, the Queens are re-opening the West End in style. Get ready to give them a royal welcome when SIX the musical opens at the Lyric Theatre London on 14 November 2020.
