Six The Musical is a pop music singing competition joined by six queens, Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherin Howard, and Catherine Parr. All these talented ladies were married to King Henry VIII. The queens compete with one another, and the one who had the worst experience with their husband will win the coveted position as the band’s lead singer. Each character embodies the likeness of modern pop stars, including Beyonce, Avril Lavigne, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and more. Together, these queens belt out music that may sound familiar but also completely brand new! While the queens battle it out on the big stage, Catherine Parr will come to a realization. Will the queens ever find happiness? Who will win the competition?
“The exuberant queenhood-is-powerful pageant about the wives of Henry VIII was shut down on opening night by the pandemic. Now it’s back, and it totally rules.” – New York Times.

Six may resemble a jukebox musical, but the show features an original score by Marlow and Moss. The musical first debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017. The production was small but adored by viewers. Soon, Six began doing multiple shows in London and even changed venues to accommodate the influx of musical enthusiasts. The same year, Six received a substantial budget and finally opened in London’s West End. From 2018 to 2019, the musical embarked on a tour in the U.K. and U.S.. Two years later, the highly-acclaimed show opened on Broadway. In 2022, Six The Musical won the Tony Award for Best Original Score and Best Costume Design in a Musical. It also won several awards at the Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Music and Outstanding Lyrics.
The musical’s unique premise, hilariousness, and score resonated well with professional critics. BroadwayWorld’s Rachel Weinberg defined the show as brilliant, “Six carries out a joyful and anachronistic takedown of the patriarchy. Meanwhile, Variety’s Frank Rizzo mentioned that “Six” deserves a “10.” He added that “there’s much to admire and love.” Time Out Magazine’s Bianca O’Neill expounded how she adored Six’s original score, “With all the jukebox musicals around at the moment, Six is proof that we can still deliver great musical scores without borrowing from history’s best Top 40 tracks.”
