After selling over 10,000 tickets and earning a clutch of 5-star reviews at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, new British musical SIX is transferring to the West End’s Arts Theatre from Thursday August 30.
Already nominated for Best Off-West End Show at the 2018 Wilma Awards, producers today announce a three-week extension to the strictly limited season to Sunday October 14 2018.
From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take the mic to tell their tale, remixing 500 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 high-octane pop concert musical by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss is widely tipped to be one of the most exciting new West End shows of 2018.
