Six Musical Tickets: Tudor Queens Rule The West EndHenry VIII’s ex-wives continue their reign over London theatre in a fist-pumping musical concert. Join Boleyn, Seymour and company for 90 minutes of uplifting pop hits at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Belting out hilarious, empowering songs inspired by modern pop royalty including “Ex Wives”, “Haus of Holbein'' and “Don’t Lose Ur Head”, the Tudor queens grab the mic and remix over five hundred years of historical heartbreak into 90 minutes of 21st-century girl power.
What is Six the Musical about?This comedy pop concert musical is inspired by the six wives of Henry VIII. Reimagining the Tudor queens as pop princesses, the wives compete to decide who suffered the most during their marriage, with the winner becoming the lead singer of their band. The musical features each queen performing a song about their life in different styles inspired by Beyoncé, Adele and other modern chart-topping artists.
This homegrown phenomenon has had audiences losing their heads since 2018 with the irresistible story of Henry’s sidelined wives taking centre stage. Six first burst onto the scene at Edinburgh Festival, created by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. Moss also directs the show alongside Jamie Armitage.
Marlow and Moss first created the show when they were students at the University of Cambridge, and the musical premiered at Edinburgh Fringe Festival before its West End premiere in 2019. It has enjoyed a swift ascent, with previous sell-out runs at the Arts Theatre and Lyric Theatre, and is now one of the biggest musicals in London with its own Queendom fandom. If you want a show that feels modern, fun, sassy and great for teenagers, this is the one to book tickets for!
Songs in SIX: Fist-pumping Pop ExcellenceSongs from the show include "Ex-Wives", "No Way", "Don't Lose Ur Head", "Heart of Stone", "Haus of Holbein", "Get Down", "All You Wanna Do", "I Don't Need Your Love" and "Six". At the end of the show, the cast perform "Megasix", which is a mashup of the queens' individual songs. "Megasix" does not feature on the official cast recording, and can only be seen live at the theatre.
Six the Musical songs are inspired by a range of modern recording artists. Catherine of Aragon's song "No Way" is based on Beyoncé, Anne Boleyn's "Don't Lose Ur Head" takes influence from Avril Lavigne and Lily Allen, and Katherine Howard's musical number "All You Wanna Do" is inspired by Ariana Grande and Britney Spears.
