Six began on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017 & now Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’ ‘her-story’ has just opened in Sydney, has its Broadway debut in February, is currently touring the UK, and as celebrations begin for its first birthday at London’s Arts Theatre, the West End run has just been extended until 31 January 2021. It’s a musical theatre fairy tale like no other.
In addition to the new booking period, over 90,000 extra seats have gone on sale to mark the show’s first West End birthday. This week the West End Queendom also welcomes a new royal as Sophie Isaacs (Heathers, Goldilocks and the Three Bears) will wear the crown for the first time as Katherine Howard.
The current West End Queendom are Jarneia Richard-Noel (Catherine of Aragon), Courtney Bowman (Anne Boleyn), Natalie Paris (Jane Seymour), Alexia McIntosh (Anna of Cleves), Danielle Steers (Catherine Parr), with Zara MacIntosh (alternate Catherine of Aragon and Katherine Howard), Cherelle Jay (alternate Anne Boleyn and Anna of Cleves), Hana Stewart (alternate Jane Seymour and Catherine Parr) and Collette Guitart (dance captain/understudy).
The Six soundtrack stormed the charts with 400,000 streams per day across the Spotify and Apple Music platforms, now amassing over 90 million streams since its release, making it the second highest streamed theatre cast album in the world. The Australian production, which opened last week at Sydney Opera House, will tour to Melbourne and Adelaide, and the Broadway staging begins on 13 February, ahead of opening night on 12 March. A successful 33-venue UK tour continues to summer 2020.
Later this year, Six will also return to Chicago, where it made its North American premiere, for an open-ended run from 8 July.
