About the showHenry VIII’s ex-wives will finally grace the stage again as SIX transfers to the Lyric Theatre for a socially-distanced limited season. 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 in December 2020.
Who Should See It?Fans of pop music and new musical theatre shouldn't hesitate to book SIX musical tickets. Anyone who’s simply been itching to get back into a theatre will also enjoy this irreverent, feel-good show.
