After three consecutive seasons in the West End and a sold-out run at Chicago Shakespeare Theater, smash-hit British musical SIX is set to take Broadway by storm. Turning Tudor history completely upside down, this concert-style show will take over from Waitress at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.
Part musical, part gig, SIX is a girl power histo-remix that sees Henry VIII’s wives step up to the mic to tell their stories. From 15th century Queens to 21st century pop princesses, Anne Boleyn, Cathy Parr and the gang belt out a roster of catchy tunes including “Get Down”, “Haus of Holbein” and “Don’t Lose Ur Head”.
The Queens of SIX on Broadway are played by Adrianna Hicks (Catherine of Aragon), Andrea Macasaet (Anne Boleyn), Abby Mueller (Jane Seymour), Brittney Mack (Anna of Cleves), Samantha Pauly (Catherine Howard), and Anna Uzele (Catherine Parr).
SIX marks the fist-pumping debut musical from creative team Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who conceived the show’s book, music and lyrics whilst at university. First performed by the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society, it travelled to Edinburgh Fringe Festival – picking up producers Kenny Wax and Global Musicals - before receiving a West End debut at the Arts Theatre and five Olivier Award nominations.
With musical influence from the likes of Beyoncé, Ariana Grande and Lily Allen, SIX is an irresistible dose of feminist-minded theater that’s guaranteed to have you tearing up your high school textbooks. It begins previews at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on February 13, 2020.
