The hit musical written by Toby Marlowe and Lucy Moss is set to become one of the first West End musicals to open once some of the current restrictions are lifted.

With social distancing in place until at least the 21st June, the Lyric Theatre will initially open at the same 50% capacity as December 2020 when the show was last performed.

Customers already booked into cancelled dates for the show will be contacted first by Nimax Theatres on the 5th March to move their bookings to new dates. Tickets for the new dates will go on general sale on the 29th March though the Nimax Theatre website.

Six is expected to perform nine shows a week a week at the Lyric theatre, where COVID-19 Secure guidelines for social distancing will include robust risk mitigation, hand sanitation, face coverings and track and trace, contactless tickets, temperature testing and the regular deep clean and sanitation of the theatre.

The musical began life as a  student production in a 100-seat room at Sweet Venue during the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and since then has been nominated for five Olivier Awards. It was due to have its opening night on Broadway when the theatres in New York were closed three hours before the show was set to begin.

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 production is directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, with 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, casting by Pearson Casting, associate direction by Franny Anne Rafferty and Grace Taylor, associate choreography by Freya Sands, musical direction by Katy Richardson and associate musical direction by Ellie Verkerk.

After concluding its run at the lyric Theatre on the 22nd August, the musical will return to the Arts Theatre where it will continue its run.
