Six at West End Live 2018

Divorced, Beheaded, Died, Divorced, Beheaded... #WestEndLIVE! The six wives of Henry VIII made history last weekend with a kick-ass performance at the annual two-day extravaganza in Trafalgar Square. All in preparation for SIX The Musical's new tour and returns to first the Edinburgh Fringe and then the Arts Theatre, with several new queens...

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six ill-treated wives of Henry VIII seize the mic to tell their stories. With songs including Ex Wives, Haus of Holbein and Don’t Lose Ur Head, this pop concert remixes five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an evening of 21st-century sass. If you thought SIX was all about one man – you thought wrong!

For the 2018 dates, Aimie Atkinson and Natalie Paris return as, respectively, Katherine Howard and Jane Seymour, and are newly joined by Alexia McIntosh (Anna of Cleves), Jarneia Richard-Noel (Catherine of Aragon), Maiya Quansah-Breed (Catherine Parr) and Millie O'Connell (Anne Boleyn) with Grace Mouat (Swing/Dance Captain).

Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who met at university, SIX started life with Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017, where it was nominated for the inaugural Musical Theatre Review Best Musical Award. The original amateur production attracted the attention of West End producers Kenny Wax and Global Musicals, who brought the show for a handful of sell-out showcase dates to the Arts Theatre this past year. 

SIX returns to London's Arts Theatre for a new limited season from 30 August to 23 September 2018. Prior to that, it visits Norwich Playhouse (11-15 July), Cambridge Arts Theatre (17-21 July) and Edinburgh Fringe's Udderbelly in George Square 1-27 August. It's directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage with choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille. Further UK tour dates are to be announced.

SIX runs at the Arts Theatre, London from 30 August to 23 September 2018. Tickets are priced £6-£39.50. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
