The highly rated and equally successful musical, based on the lives of the six wives of King Henry VIII, is back with a bang! Listen carefully, as the all-female cast take to the mic and belt out their stories and misfortunes in song and dance. This musical is a commemoration and celebration of sisterly sass-itude and will definitely keep you entertained.
Why Watch Six: The Musical
Following six sold out shows, a successful stint in Edinburgh, and a highly acclaimed pop-concert musical last year, Six the Musical is finally back on stage to wow audiences all over again. This production is inspired by the lives and trials of Henry VIII’s six wives and tells history from their perspective. With a talented all-female cast and a brilliant, infectious score, ‘Six the Musical’ is here to light up the West End stage. Apart from thoroughly entertaining you, this musical is also highly relevant in today’s scenario of female empowerment and equality, as it recounts the lives of six women, who were otherwise just known for being Henry VIII’s wives.
Everyone today is aware of the famous mnemonic device to help remember the fate of Henry VIII's wives - Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. This is how the six wives of Henry VIII were remembered and have been so for the past 500 odd years. But no longer, for this musical tells their story from six different perspectives, from the eyes of the six women themselves. Watch, as six fierce women play the roles of Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr; and remix 500 years of heartbreak as they present history from a different point of view.

“It’s a nice idea, neatly done, in a show that began as a student production at last year’s Edinburgh fringe… It may be cloaked in silliness, but Six makes some serious points about female victimhood and survival.”
