A UK tour, a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and West End season beckons for new British musical Six.
From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the Six wives of Henry VIII take the mic to tell their tale in this pop concert musical by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss.
Prior to the West End premiere at the Arts Theatre (30 August to 23 September 2018), the musical will run at Norwich Playhouse (11-14 July) and Cambridge Arts Theatre (17-21 July). Plus, following last year’s sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Six will play the main Underbelly purple cow in George Square (1-27 August).
Six is a co-production between Kenny Wax and Global Musicals. Wendy Barnes of Global Musicals said: “Kenny, Andy and I saw the previous production independently of each other but we were all immediately blown away by the funny, relevant humour and infectious score that these two young talents had created.
“We are proud to debut their first musical and begin an ambitious and exciting journey for the piece, which is particularly relevant at this time as we strive for female equality and empowerment. These women were so much more than history would have us believe.”
Directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, the production has set design by Emma Bailey and costume design by Gabriella Slade. Cast, full creative team and further UK tour dates are to be announced.
