SIX has reigned over London theatre since 2018 thanks to its fist-pumping, tongue-in-cheek histo-remix that sees Henry VIII’s famously mistreated wives take centre stage. Transforming from sidelined Queens to pop royalty, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour and co. rip up the history books with songs including “Haus of Holbein”, “Get Down” and “I Don’t Need Your Love”.
After sell-out seasons at its current home, the Arts Theatre, SIX is temporarily moving into the larger Lyric Theatre whilst COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.
The musical was created by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, and is also directed by Moss and Jamie Armitage. Other creatives include choreographer Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, costume designer Gabriella Slade and set designer Emma Bailey.
Casting for 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 Queens have finally returned - divorced, beheaded and live. SIX the musical runs at the Lyric Theatre from December 2020.
