‘From Tudor queens to pop princesses, ‘Six’ sees the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their own personal tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power’.
Multi-award-winning West End smash hit musical ‘Six‘ will come to the Birmingham Hippodrome in 2020 as part of its UK tour.
‘Six’ is written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, with direction by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabriella Slade, lighting design by Tim Deiling, sound design by Paul Gatehouse, musical orchestration by Tom Curran, musical supervision by Joe Beighton, associate choreography by Freya Sands, musical direction by Katy Richardson and associate musical direction by Arlene McNaught. ‘Six’ is produced by Kenny Wax, Global Musicals and George Stiles.
The show’s 2018 debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe hastened its West End transfer which opened in January 2019. The production is currently enjoying an open-ended run in London at the Arts Theatre playing to sold out houses. The cast, yet to be announced, are backed by the show’s all-female band, The Ladies in Waiting.
The songs from the show have proved to be a chart storming sensation with weekly streams totalling more than 2 million.
To date, ‘Six’ has been nominated for five 2019 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.
‘Six‘ writers Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss said: “We are SOOOO excited and thrilled and grateful that we get to share the story of these badass Queens – and the UNREAL talents of these women – with so many more people all over the UK! We’ll see you there!!! WOOOOOOOO!!!”.
Chris Sudworth, Director of Artistic Programme at Birmingham Hippodrome added: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing this hit home-grown British musical to Birmingham for the very first time. From seeing the show during its very beginnings at the Edinburgh Festival, I have watched this production grow and grow in popularity, gaining rave reviews and sell-out standing ovations and now we can’t wait for our audiences to experience this very special show. Long reign ‘Six’ at Birmingham Hippodrome!”.
‘Six‘ will come to Birmingham Hippodrome from Tuesday 21st to Saturday 25th July 2020.
