Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’ West End musical phenomenon Six will reopen at London’s Lyric Theatre on 21 May 2021, booking until 22 August. With social distancing at indoor venues expected to remain in place until 21 June at the earliest, the theatre will initially operate at the same 50% capacity as December 2020 before the current national lockdown.
Customers already booked into cancelled dates for the show will be contacted first by Nimax Theatres from 5 March to move their bookings to new dates.
The 2021 Six UK tour will resume soon – in the meantime, all ticket holders for cancelled performances will be contacted directly by the theatres.
In the event of any changes to the ‘roadmap’ dates made by the Government affecting the production, the producers will respond according to any revised dates as soon as possible.
Six will perform nine shows a week at the Lyric Theatre, where Covid-19 Secure guidelines for social distancing will include robust risk mitigation, hand sanitation, face coverings and track and trace, contactless tickets, temperature testing and the regular deep clean and sanitation of the theatre.
From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic in Six to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.
Since its early days as a student production in a 100-seat room at Sweet Venue during the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, SIX has become a global musical phenomenon. As the pandemic struck, SIX was playing to sold out houses in London’s West End, across the UK and Australia, and had its opening night in New York on Thursday March 12 cancelled when the New York Governor shut down Broadway three hours before the show was due to open.
Six was nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best New Musical. The cast has performed on both Britain’s Got Talent and regularly in front of thousands at West End Live in Trafalgar Square. Songs from the studio album of Six have been streamed over 200 million times.
The production is directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, with 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 supervisor is Joe Beighton and musical director is Katy Richardson. Six is produced by Kenny Wax, Wendy and Andy Barnes and George Stiles.
