Men and stories of their exploits have long graced history books and often little is known about the women in their lives. King Henry VIII reigned in one of the most regressive periods of history where his wives had been reduced to a footnote, based on their fates – Divorced and Beheaded. In 2020, Broadway will witness a topsy-turvy punk version of this history when the Queens raise their voice and sing out their stories, unabashed and loud! Watch the Six Queens of King Henry reclaim their power this spring in an outrageously entertaining and fun musical show.
Six The Musical: About The Show
Feminism and British history are rarely on the same page but Six attempts to bring them together in a neon-designed rock-concert on stage. The show written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss challenged the story of Henry VIII and his Queens and gave them a voice through this path-breaking show that also contests theatre traditions. The Queens dress up in punk costumes, sing their version of history in pop, rock, and even EDM, and they urge you to film them singing! Don’t miss out on this scintillating show that is an endearing display of sisterhood and all about creating your own identity.
Six The Musical: Broadway Story
King Henry VIII undoubtedly holds the reputation as one of the worst men in history. So much so that children learning history today need a mnemonic to be reminded about the tragic fates of his wives. Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived, that’s how it goes. The rock concert is about the Queens taking power in their own hands and narrating their perspective of history. The show turns the story on its head by featuring the Queens in a modern pop-concert kind of scenario where the one who has the most tragic story gets to lead the band.
Watch Six The Musical to find out which Queen has it the worst and who gets to lead the band!
