Steven Greenhalgh, Concord Theatricals’ Vice President of Acquisitions & Artistic Development (Europe) said: “From their halls of residence, Toby and Lucy right royally created one of the most significant contributions to new British musical theatre in recent times.

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 21st century girl power. The female cast is backed by an all-female band, the “Ladies in Waiting.”
SIX has become a global phenomenon since its early days as a student production in a 100-seat room at Sweet Venue during the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It is now storming stages around the world, in London’s West End, Broadway, and across the UK, Australia and North America. The studio album has clocked up more than 200 million streams making it the second highest streamed cast recording in the world, second only to the ‘Hamilton’ original cast recording.
SIX is currently playing at the Lyric Theatre in the West End and touring the UK into 2022. Its Broadway opening night on 12 March, 2020 was cancelled when the New York Governor shut down Broadway three hours before the show was due to open. It will recommence performances at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on 17 September, 2021 with an official Broadway opening night of 3 October, 2021.
