The West End musical phenomenon Six by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss will open in New York at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on 12 March 2020. Performances will begin on 13 February 2020.
Vicki Manser told us about Six the Musical, who she’d like to play her in her own pop concert musical and what she’d say to Henry VIII if she got the chance…
Five-time Olivier Award nominee and West End hit Six The Musical, written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, is heading off on a nine-month tour visiting theatres later this year, opening at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford on 24 October 2019.
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.
The success of Six The Musical continues with a West End booking extension to 5 January 2020, the announcement of the show’s first US production in Chicago and the musical’s studio album being named as the Best UK Cast Recording in The Curtain Up Show Album of The Year Awards.
You know you’re at a different type of theatre experience when you find yourself singing along – loudly – about how much we all love looking at cocks in the locker room. (Even when you’ve never been in a cocker-room.)
You enter a dark basement in the heart of the West End. RuPaul is blaring, lights are flashing and there is dancing. Yet this is not a club. Instead, it’s Hot Gay Time Machine.
Fun, flamboyance and festivity, Hot Gay Time Machine is probably the most fun you’ll have at the theatre this year (and next year when it’ll no doubt be ruling the West End and the world).
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Thursday 29 November 2018, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock returns to Trafalgar Studios for the West End premiere of Hot Gay Time Machine (from the writers of SIX). Got any questions?
As tickets go on sale today for the 16-week, by-overwhelming-popular-demand West End return season of SIX The Musical, here’s a must-watch (or watch-again) video for you: Terri Paddock chaired a post-show Q&A with the sextet of queens and writers Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss as they started their current, widely popular sell-out season at the Arts Theatre.
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.
Hot Gay Time Machine by multi-award-winning comedy duo Zak Ghazi-Torbati and Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss (Marlow and Moss are co-writers of current West End hit musical Six), arrives in the West End for a Christmas season at London’s Trafalgar Studios from 27 November to 5 January 2018.
Short and sharply observed, impeccably sung and filled with irrepressible spirit, this is precisely the kind of work that advances the form of musical theatre for contemporary audiences.
Divorced, Beheaded and now LIVE! Following its run in Edinburgh and its previous run in London, Six brings an electrifying, sexy and entertaining history lesson you won’t forget.
As someone who grew up spending her weekends visiting Hampton Court Palace, Six is pretty much my ideal musical.
Beheadings are brutal and barbaric, whether they occurred five months or five centuries ago. And yet, with heads jauntily skewed, grim grins (albeit momentarily) and hand-held mics tightly grasped, the cast of Six The Musical make light of Henry VIII’s murderous misogyny.
Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss have created something truly special here in Six – a complete one of a kind, act of genius. Who knew history could be so entertaining? Seeing is believing though, so don’t take my word for it, go and see it for yourself.
