The premise for SIX, the West End musical
From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of her-storical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of sisterly sass-itude.
Following last year’s sell-out pop-concert musical, and West End run, SIX comes to the Lyric Theatre powered by an all-female band.
Divorced! Beheaded! and now Live at the Lyric!

British musical SIX production history
The modern retelling of King Henry VIII's six wives turned divas had its humble beginnings in 2017 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it was presented by history-loving Cambridge students. The concept of the show was born in a poetry class. As research for the show, Marlow read Antonia Fraser's "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" whilst Moss watched Lucy Worsley's documentary series Six Wives.
Since making its professional debut, the musical has crossed the pond for its North American premiere at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and later was announced to head to Broadway. The West End production has been nominated for 5 Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best Musical, whilst the Broadway production was nominated for two Drama League Awards.
The award-winning musical returned to London's Arts Theatre and was set for an extended run before being impacted by COVID-19 closures. SIX is now set to be the first full-scale West< end musical to return to the stage playing an 11 week COVID secure limited run at the Lyric Theatre.
