New British musical Six announces UK tour, a run at the Edinburgh Fringe and West End season


Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FROM Tudor queens to pop princesses, the Six wives of Henry VIII finally take the mic to tell their tale, remixing five hundred years of her-storical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of sisterly sass-itude.

Powered by an all-female band and with songs including Ex Wives, Haus of Holbein and Don’t Lose Ur Head, this pop concert musical by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss is widely tipped to be one of the most exciting new shows of 2018.

Prior to the West End premiere at the Arts Theatre (August 30 to September 23, 2018), Six will run at Norwich Playhouse (July 11-14) and Cambridge Arts Theatre (July 17-21) and following last year’s sell-out run, it will return to the Edinburgh Fringe to the main Underbelly purple cow in George Square (August 1-27).

Six is a co-production between Kenny Wax and Global Musicals and Wendy Barnes of Global Musicals said:

“Kenny, Andy and I saw the previous production independently of each other but we were all immediately blown away by the funny, relevant humour and infectious score that these two young talents had created. We are proud to debut their first musical and begin an ambitious and exciting journey for the piece, which is particularly relevant at this time as we strive for female equality and empowerment. These women were so much more than history would have us believe.”

Six is directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, with set design by Emma Bailey and costume design by Gabriella Slade. Cast, full creative team and further UK tour dates will be announced in due course.

Tickets will be on sale for London and Edinburgh from 10am on Thurday, April 19, 2018.
