Forget one new Duchess. The West End has gone all out and gotten itself six new queens. Yaaaaaaaaaas! Today, the cast of the eagerly anticipated Six The Musical has been announced and we’re royally impressed.

The all-female band powering this brand new British musical will be made up of six fierce performers. Each will play one of Henry VIII’s wives to retell their story from their perspective. Jarneia Richard-Noel (The Color Purple) will play Catherine Of Aragon, Millie O’Connell (Thoroughly Modern Millie) will play Anne Boleyn, Natalie Paris (Sunday in the Park with George) will play Jane Seymour, Alexia McIntosh (Godiva Rocks) will play Anna Of Cleves, Aimie Atkinson (In The Heights) will play Katherine Howard, and Maiya Quansah-Breed will play Catherine Parr. Grace Mouat will complete the cast as swing/dance captain.

Remixing 500 years of heartbreak, this celebration of sisterly sass-itude will tell the her-story of these significant women from a whole new point of view.

Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, Six attracted the attention of producers Kenny Wax and Global Musicals Ltd following a hit run at Edinburgh where it received rave reviews. It played a select number of performances in London earlier this year, and now returns for a fully-fledged run in the West End.

Wendy Barnes of Global Musicals said: “Kenny, Andy and I saw the previous production independently of each other but we were all immediately blown away by the funny, relevant humour and infectious score that these two young talents had created. We are proud to debut their first musical and begin an ambitious and exciting journey for the piece, which is particularly timely as we strive for female equality and empowerment. These women were so much more than history would have us believe.”

Six opens at the Arts Theatre on 30 August 2018.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
