Six The Musical is Back
Critically acclaimed where ever it goes, Six is the show that gives each of King Henry VIIIs six wives the chance to tell their side of the story, beyond a single word in a famous saying! Divorced! Beheaded! Live! is the reworked mantra for our leading ladies.

What have you been missing
From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII remix five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a celebration of 16th century girl power: 21st century style.
The show is presented like a girl band concert and the music is in that style. Each of the members of “the band” get their chance to complain about Henry, history and their “lot” in an attempt to win the role of lead singer by demonstrating who had the worst time of it.
The show, with book, music and lyrics by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, originally appeared on the Edinburgh Fringe but has since gone on with productions in Australia and Europe and America.
Getting to the Vaudeville Theatre
Here in London, the home of Six the musical will be the Vaudeville Theatre on London’s famous Strand
Get down and book early to avoid disappointment for ‘the best the West End has to offer’ (✭✭✭✭ Telegraph)
For getting to the theatre use the Piccadilly Line to Covent Garden and walk through the famous market
Also the show is quite short at 75 minutes, with only one act, so you will have plenty of time afterwards to explore London’s West End at night – wander around Theatreland and into Soho. Grab a late meal or just have a drink in a nearby bar or club before retiring to your hotel room.
