Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’s is set to resume performances from the 4th August at a number of different open air sites, joining the Utilita Live From The Drive-In summer shows to perform eight shows a week across the UK including: London, Birmingham, Bolton, Bristol, Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Lincoln, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Newmarket and Teesside.

The drive through performances will allow up to 300 vehicles, with a maximum of seven people per car.

Designed to comply with all official guidelines, Utilita Live From The Drive-In will deliver the UK’s premier drive-in experience, boasting concert quality sound from a live stage with a full state of the art sound system, lighting rig and high definition LED screens, creating an arena or stadium concert feel in a safe Drive-In setting adhering to the Government’s current social distancing rules to protect fans, artists, crews and staff at all times.

Customers will arrive by car, but they will be allowed to step outside and picnic while they watch the festival-style live stage show from their own dedicated area next to their vehicle.

Producer Kenny Wax said: “We are delighted that SIX will spearhead the reopening of one of London and the UK’s most popular shows. With the industry in crisis, theatres struggling and some even going out of business, this drive-in event offers hope for the future and equally importantly, jobs for about fifty of our company including cast, musicians, stage managers, technicians and freelancers. We are using both our West End and UK touring casts, rehearsing and touring them in a bubble and having them work in teams of 6 (fortunate for us) as per the government guidance.”

From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic in SIX to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.

The musical was first performed as a student production in a 100-seat room at Sweet Venue at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Since then, it has set up residence in London’s Arts Theatre and been nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best New Musical and won the WOS award for Best Musical 2020.

It was written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, with direction by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage. Six features choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, Set Design by Emma Bailey, Costume Design by Gabriella Slade, Lighting Design by Tim Deiling, Sound Design by Paul Gatehouse, Musical Orchestration by Tom Curran, Musical Supervision by Joe Beighton and Musical Direction by Katy Richardson.

Tickets will go on sale at 8am on the 3rd July and will be available to purchase here:
