About the showDivorced, beheaded… Live!
Lucy Moss and Toby Marlow’s crowd-favourite, mega-hit musical SIX returns once more. Strutting back into the West End to reign at the Vaudeville Theatre, the concert-style show spins the well-known history of Henry VIII and his six wives on its head, following the fate of each wife.
SIX sees the ill-fated Tudor Queens transformed into pop princesses who are 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 genuine toe-tappers such as “Get Down”, “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 at the Arts Theatre. Since then, the show went on to sell-out at the 2018 Fringe Festival, before returning to the Arts for yet another smash-hit, sold-out run. From 2020 the show played at the Lyric Theatre and now, to incredibly high demand, the production continues running at the Vaudeville.
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 hundreds 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 has quickly become a West End staple. It is a high-powered pop sensation that hits the rafters every night.
Who Should See It?Those who missed out on seeing the production once it sold-out now have the chance to catch it again! Fans of Hamilton, new musical theatre and anything in the pop charts will love this show’s unique style.
SIX is recommended 12+.
