Bow down, the queens have arrived. After shuttering just hours before its opening night due to the coronavirus pandemic, Six resumed performances at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre September 17. The new official opening is scheduled for October 3.
Six tells the stories of the wives of Henry VIII as they reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse. Presented like a concert, Lucy Moss and Toby Marlow's score draws inspiration from contemporary musical artists who have dominated the pop charts. In the time since its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017, the musical has become an international hit. The musical had begun performances in New York February 13, 2020, following a multi-city regional circuit.
