Speaking on the Variety Awards Circuit podcast, Phillipa Soo admitted that she would love to star in the hit musical, saying: "I haven't seen it, and I've just heard some of the music but it looks f**king cool.
"I've heard some of the music, and I've seen what everybody else is seeing, like a glimpse of a preview. I have some friends that saw it when it was in London.

SIX premiere on Broadway halted by coronavirus last year
The Broadway transfer of SIX was set to have its opening night back in March 2020 before it was abruptly halted by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. It is still expected to premiere once Broadway theatres are permitted to re-open, which may not be until autumn 2021. In the UK, the musical's new-and-improved production of SIX was given the green light before a rise in COVID cases once again led to multiple lockdowns.
