The hit musical will begin previews at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on the 13th February 2020.
Producers Kenny Wax, Wendy & Andy Barnes, George Stiles and Kevin McCollum have confirmed that Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’s musical is set to open on Broadway next year.
Having first begun life as a student production in a 100-seat room at Sweet Venue at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival two years ago, the musical has gone on to have a UK tour and is currently playing in London and Chicago.
Talking about the news Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss said: “We are unbelievably excited about Six coming to Broadway, like actually what is going on! We are so grateful that we get to share our show with an even wider audience, especially somewhere as iconic as the home of musical theatre – Broadway baby! The whole team across the pond are ridiculously amazing, and we can’t wait to share the show with you – NYC, thanks for having us!”
Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the wives of Henry VIII take the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an exuberant celebration of 21st century girl power.
The musical is co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage and features choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille. The design team includes Emma Bailey (Set Design), Gabriella Slade (Costume Design), Paul Gatehouse (Sound Design) and Tim Deiling (Lighting Design). The score features orchestrations by Tom Curran with music supervision and vocal arrangements by Joe Beighton. Casting for the New York production has yet to be announced.
Six will play at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre from the 13th February 2020. For more information visit: https://www.sixthemusical.com/broadway
