A new booking period for the hit London production of Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’ musical Six will run until 31 January 2021, with over 90,000 extra seats going on sale on 17 January 2020 to mark the show’s first West End birthday at the Arts Theatre.
Plus, on 21 January, the West End Queendom welcomes a new royal as Sophie Isaacs will wear the crown for the first time as Katherine Howard. Sophie starred as Heather McNamara in the cult West End hit musical Heathers and recently was Goldilocks in Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the London Palladium.
The current West End Queendom are Jarneia Richard-Noel (Catherine of Aragon), Courtney Bowman (Anne Boleyn), Natalie Paris (Jane Seymour), Alexia McIntosh (Anna of Cleves), Danielle Steers (Catherine Parr), with Zara MacIntosh (alternate Catherine of Aragon and Katherine Howard), Cherelle Jay (alternate Anne Boleyn and Anna of Cleves), Hana Stewart (alternate Jane Seymour and Catherine Parr) and Collette Guitart (dance captain/understudy).
The Six soundtrack stormed the charts with 400,000 streams per day across the Spotify and Apple Music platforms, now amassing over 90 million streams since its release, making it the second highest streamed theatre cast album in the world. The Australian production, which opened this week at Sydney Opera House, will tour to Melbourne and Adelaide, and the Broadway staging begins on 13 February, ahead of opening night on 12 March. A successful 33-venue UK tour continues to summer 2020.
Later this year, Six will also return to Chicago, where it made its North American premiere, for an open-ended run from 8 July.
