Creators Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss said “It feels so unreal to be writing this, but we are both unbelievably excited Broadway is returning and that SIX will finally open on Broadway!!! And this is not just because we can't wait to be reunited with our Broadway family, but also because SIX opening means that the theatre industry is on the road to returning!! Soon the theatre community will be able to come together after a year of unimaginable challenges - and THIS is what fills us with just absurd and ridiculous amounts of happiness. WOOOO!” Producer Kevin McCollum said “The opening of SIX on Broadway is going to be epic! The SIX family is beyond excited to share our production with Broadway and the entire country. We look forward to welcoming our incredible fans and new audiences safely back into the theatre. To say it’s been a long time coming would be an understatement and we are profoundly grateful to begin...anew.”
SIX has become a global phenomenon since its early days as a student production in a 100-seat venue during the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As the pandemic struck, SIX was playing to sold out houses in London’s West End, across the UK and Australia.
Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, in SIX the wives of Henry VIII take the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a celebration of 21 st century girl power. The female cast is backed by an all-female band, the “Ladies in Waiting.”
