Welcome to the show, to the histo-remix! Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss's SIX The Musical is transferring the West End's Vaudeville Theatre! The Queen's are moving castle and taking up a permanent royal residence at the Vaudeville Theatre from 24 September!
The premise for SIX, the West End musical
From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of her-storical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of sisterly sass-itude.
The West End and world's sell-out pop-concert musical SIX is moving to a new forever home at the Vaudeville Theatre, powered by an all-female band.
Divorced! Beheaded! Live in the West End!

British musical SIX production history
The modern retelling of King Henry VIII's six wives turned divas had its humble beginnings in 2017 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it was presented by history-loving Cambridge students. The concept of the show was born in a poetry class. As research for the show, Marlow read Antonia Fraser's "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" whilst Moss watched Lucy Worsley's documentary series Six Wives.
Since making its professional debut, the musical has crossed the pond for its North American premiere at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and later was announced to head to Broadway. The West End production has been nominated for 5 Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best Musical, whilst the Broadway production was nominated for two Drama League Awards.
The award-winning musical returned to London's Arts Theatre and was set for an extended run before being impacted by COVID-19 closures. SIX then moved to their temporary castle, the Lyric Theatre, for a COVID secure limited run. Next up, the Queens are moving to the West End's Vaudeville Theatre.
