Divorced, beheaded, and now live on stage! Tudor England's historical heartbreak is retold and re-imagined through 21st-century sass in Global Musicals’ smash-hit production, Six.
In this completely refreshing, uplifting and hilarious new British musical, Henry VIII’s wives get the chance to tell their own stories and they are not shying away from the opportunity. Re-imagined as six powerful pop princesses, Catherine of Aragon, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, Catherine Parr and Anne Boleyn explode onto stage to retell the stories of Tudor history we all think we know with their own hysterical take on events and empowered final word. Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss and featuring a diverse, star-studded cast of women including Adrianna Hicks, Andrea Macasaet, Brittney Mack, Samantha Pauly, Anna Uzele and Abby Mueller, Six explodes onto stage in a genre-bending pop concert and musical theatre hybrid. This West End musical’s sensational studio album has won critical acclaim across the world, with Six Broadway now appearing in New York City and heading all the way down under to Australian theatres too. As well as genius costume design that puts a 21st-century spin on traditional Tudor garms and the most glitzy purple sets, Six the Musical is also full of important messages about gender and power and pushes the boundaries of history through humour, wit and endless amounts of fun.
Get ready to lose your head and unleash your inner diva at one of the most popular new musicals in London and a history lesson the kids will never forget!
