You’ll lose your head over Six The Musical, which is bringing a new audience to the Festival Theatre just a week ahead of the show’s Broadway debut.
As well as providing a welcome opportunity for performers to really cut loose, Six also – sadly – remains at the cutting edge of the zeitgeist.
The Stage today (8 August 2019) announces the shortlist for The Stage Debut Awards 2019.

Full details of presenters, performances and special appearances have been announced for the Olivier Awards 2019 with Mastercard, which takes place on Sunday 7 April at the Royal Albert Hall, hosted by Jason Manford.
I can’t begrudge anyone their enjoyment of Six, a fast-paced display of talented women – I enjoyed it, too. However – rather like the history it’s trying to tell – such awesome performers deserve a much better frame for showing what they’re capable of.
A brief but hugely memorable history lesson awaits you at the Arts Theatre. Sexy, sassy, sensational, seductive, stunning and superb, are just Six ways that you can describe this show and its awesome cast.
This week the 2019 Olivier Awards nominations were announced and Six is up for five. For a show which started as a university project, it’s pretty amazing and inspiring that Six is reaching such levels of stardom, and rightly so.
Musicals Company and Come From Away top the Olivier Awards 2019 nominations with nine nods each, while The Inheritance is the most recognised play with eight nominations. The ceremony takes place on Sunday 7 April at the Royal Albert Hall, hosted by Jason Manford.
This year has been a whirlwind year full of amazing theatre. I was lucky enough to see a total of 150 shows so whittling them down to a top 10 was extremely difficult. Although this list is in order, I really loved each of them equally as they all moved me in a particular way and provided some theatrical treats.
Final casting is announced today for the return of Six, the hit musical by recent Cambridge grads Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. The show returns to the West End’s Arts Theatre, where it ran for a short sold-out season in 2018, in January next year.

Took me a shameful while to catch up on this clever little riot of a feminist musical, down from an Edinburgh triumph and packing the Arts Theatre for weeks with whooping gigsters. But just as I hit a late matinee came news that it’ll be back there in 2019.
SIX, the most acclaimed new British musical in years, whose sold-out run at the Arts Theatre – extended due to overwhelming demand – ends on 14 October 2018, is to return to the West End.
