Theatre and hotel packages are now available to see Six – the musical in which each of Henry VIII’s wives get their say! Currently booking to Summer 2020.
…the most uplifting piece of new British musical theatre (✭✭✭✭✭ The Evening Standard)
Critically acclaimed where ever it goes, Sixis 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.
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. It will open on Broadway in February 2020.
Here in London, the home of Six the musicalis the Arts Theatre just between Leicester Square and Covent Garden.
Get down and book early to avoid disappointment for ‘the best the West End has to offer’ (✭✭✭✭ Telegraph)
We are lucky to have access to every seat, for every show in the run so you should be able to get great seats for your chosen performance.
For getting to the theatre use the Piccadilly Line or the Northern line to get to Leicester Square.
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 through Covent Garden or Leicetser Square and into Soho. Grab a late meal or just have a drink in a nearby bar or club before retiring to your hotel room.
Excellent nearby restaurants on Great Newport Street itself include Sartori, P.F. Chang’s Asian Table and Salvador and Amanda, whilst you can turn right into Cranbourn Street and find Spaghetti House, Piazza Restaurant, Heliot Steak House and Fiori London all within just a few yards!
We are sure you will enjoy your Six Theatre Break!
