Six the Musical  - One of a kind no category - My Review

On Wednesday 15th May I was lucky enough to be invited to the hit sensation Six The Musical in Londons’ glimmering West End. 

Six The Musical is written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss while studying at Cambridge University. The musical had it’s premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2017, and then went on to have a very short run at the Arts Theatre which was closed due to the COVID-19 Lockdown and then went to Lyric Theatre after Lockdown  and finally to its forever home at the Vaudeville. It has had great success including multiple tours across the UK , North America , Australia and New Zealand with a second home on Broadway. 

Six tells the story of Henry V111 wives brought into the 21st century as a concert with impressive and fun pop songs. Some of the hits which have be heard over 100 million times include Heart of Stone, No Way, I don’t need your love, Don’t loose your head, All you wanna do, Six, Ex-Wives, Get Down, Haus of Holborn and the MEGASix. 

The cast included Nikki Bentley as Catherine of Aragon, Theo Therese Ngugen as Anne Boleyn, Kayleigh McKnight as Jane Seymour, Rena Oakley as Anne of Cleves, Hannah Lowther and Janiq Charles as Catherine Parr. 

The Ladies in Waiting were as follows Ella Ingram as Joan, Isis Dunthorne as Maria, Emma Jemima as Maggie and Kelly Morris as Bessie. 

Six the musical is a high energy show that is more than a pop concert, for me the outstanding performance of the night was Kayleigh McKnight’s vocals in Heart of stone, which made me very emotional, however all the queens and Ladies in Waiting are fabulous. 

I can definitely see that Six The Musical will continue it’s reign at the vaudeville theatre for many years to come, its no surprise that this show is a global phenomenon. If you are looking for a highly entertaining, music filled night at the theatre I would 100% recommend this show to you. 

I’m giving this show a star rating of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
