SIX is a lively British musical comedy created by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. It’s like a modern spin on the stories of Henry VIII’s six wives but presented as a pop concert. Each wife takes a turn telling her story to see who had it the roughest with their shared husband.
This musical had its start at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017, where students from Cambridge University put on the first performances. Then it hit the West End in January 2019 and even went on a tour around the UK. In January 2020, an Australian version graced the Sydney Opera House. It made its Broadway debut in March 2020 but had to take a break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Luckily, it roared back to life at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on October 3, 2021. There are also two North American tours, known as the “Aragon” and “Boleyn” tours, which kicked off in 2022.
One of the best reviews of the production came from The Guardian. The review perfectly encompassed the message that SIX the Musical was trying to send. The review wrote, “Musicals aren’t always kind to women (some classics are downright misogynist), but Six is a joyous celebration of sisterhood. It’s the kind of show that makes you want to be a teenager again; if you’d found Six when you were sixteen, you’d be obsessed too. No wonder it’s getting 60,000 streams per day.”
If you’re a woman, you’re bound to have a damn good time at this show. If you’re a man, you need to see this show just to understand how powerful it is to be a woman! Right now, the production is running at the renowned Lena Horne Theatre (previously Brooks Atkinson Theatre). As of writing, the show is running until March 2024. This limited Broadway engagement may never come back again, so you need to be sure to catch it live!
Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. The story of Henry VIII’s six wives can’t get any better than this! If you want an ultra-feminist and ultra-modern Broadway production, you definitely can’t miss this. Join the show at the Lena Horne Theatre! You can even catch a drink with your friends after seeing such a lively musical.
