Here’s all the reasons we can’t wait to join the ball again and why these ex-wives are the ultimate social distancers.
Live theatre is happening in the West End again
After months of theatres being closed across the country, we can’t think of a show to celebrate the West End reopening that’s better suited than SIX. Paving the way for live performances and bringing the record-breaking show to even wider audiences, this musical has definitely written itself into the history of London’s theatre scene. Be a part of the West End buzz with SIX tickets and look forward to a performance that you’ll never forget.
SIX has taken over the world
Never seen this royal musical before? Written by Cambridge graduates Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, the musical tells the stories of Henry VIII’s six wives that don’t usually make it into the textbooks. First performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017, SIX has gone on to become an era-defining musical, with productions in the United Kingdom, Australia and even on Broadway. Hailed as “the most uplifting piece of new British musical theatre” by the Evening Standard, get ready to see the 80-minute remix of Tudor history that’s continuing to take over the theatre world.
See the #RuleOfSix in action
We may not be dealing with plagues quite like the Tudor wives did, but if you’re wanting to follow one #RuleOfSix, you’ll need to see this musical. With just six cast members taking it in turns to share their lives without bursting each other’s bubble, it’s a great example of how to act around each other during social distancing times.
The songs will stick in your head
With an original soundtrack by Marlow and Moss, get ready to “Lose Ur Head” at some of the funniest lyrics in show business. Inspired by female pop superstars from Adele to Ariana Grande, these women riff their heartaches out live on stage. If you can’t wait to hear the songs, why not check out the original cast recording on Spotify. Did you know that the album has been streamed over 100 million times?
These performances are designed with you in mind
Worried that social distancing will affect the performances? There’s plenty of policies in place to ensure the highest safety levels possible. As well as hand sanitiser stations, face coverings, and track and trace, there’ll also be temperature testing taken at the door to guarantee the health and wellness of everyone around you. There’ll also be contactless tickets and deep cleans of the Lyric Theatre after every performance. So, when you’re at Six, you can “Get Down” with the queens in style at their new castle.
This run is extremely limited
Six will be at the Lyric Theatre for just 11 weeks, with performances from November 14, 2020 to January 31, 2021. To adhere with social distancing guidelines, there’s limited seating capacity for each performance, meaning the likelihood of performances selling out is even bigger than before. There’s “No Way” you’ll want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the wives back in action.
