Six on Broadway Background

Six is a 2017 British musical with the book, music, and lyrics written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. Marlow first conceived the musical’s premise during his studies at Cambridge University in 2006, and quickly enlisted Moss to assist in the writing process.

Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017

The show made its world premiere in 2017 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and soon attracted the attention of several West End producers. Later that year, Six made its professional debut through several Off-West End performances at the Arts Theatre and then began touring the UK in the Summer of 2018.

North American Tour 2019

By 2019, the musical had garnered a North American tour which was kicked off at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, which many saw as a true Broadway tryout. As of 2020, Six made an international impact on the theatre community, with performances around the globe in Sydney, Australia, as well as Chicago and on New York's Broadway.

Production Cleans House With All-New Actors December 2023

The show announced In October 2023 that its current six principal actors will all depart the show en-masse on the same day, December 3rd. 2023.

The cast let go included Hailee Kaleem Wright, Leandra Ellis-Gaston, Bella Coppola, Nasia Thomas, Zoe Jensen and Taylor Iman Jones. All these actors will played their final performance at the Lena Horne Theatre on Dec 3, 2023. The alternate Holli’ Conway also exited the production on that date.

This means that the cast all appeared in the show for exactly one year of performances.

Rush As New Actors Sought As Replacement

The six lead actors started in the production together on Dec. 5, 2022, with Wright as Catherine of Aragon, Ellis-Gaston as Anne Boleyn, Coppola as Jane Seymour, Thomas as Anna of Cleves, Jensen as Katherine Howard and Jones as Catherine Parr.

The alternates Ayla Ciccone-Burton, Kristina Leopold, Aubrey Matalon and Cassie Silva continued with the company.

The Mass Ousting Is Not Normal Procedure For Broadway

The action of replacing all the actors at once is not a normal procedure on Broadway, where actors are usually replaced individually over time, that allows new actors to get up and running with the show and show knowledge is passed on.

It is not clear for the reason why the entire cast was let go all at once. Maybe Henry the Eighth had something to do with it.

What’s Six Like?

With Hamilton fever still in the air, the penchant for historical subject matter set to a modern beat is quite palpable. Following in the historically-modern genre, Six follows the six ex-wives of King Henry VIII as they perform a fictional concert together.

Fourth Wall Is Broken

After their opening number, the many Queens break the fourth wall and explain their competition to the audience; whoever had the worst marriage to Henry VIII gets to be the lead singer of the group. The six Queens begin recounting their experiences being married to King Henry, detailing everything from divorces to summary executions.

Coming To The Ultimate Conclusion

The Queens ultimately begin bickering amongst themselves until they come to the conclusion that they should not base their worth solely off being Henry’s wife, but rather on their own accomplishments as the many Queens of England.

Poor Critical Response For The Show

Critics complain that the show is both thin on subject and very short in length. At just over an hour with no intermission the show lacks depth and audiences feel the show does not provide good value for money. Despite having a wealth of potential historical information available, the show also fails to provide a 'Hamilton-esque experience where you expect to come out more knowledgeable about the subject matter.

Cheap Laughs Over Interesting Dialog

The show favors cheap laughs over interesting dialog and does away with all spoken word. It tells the stories of the six wives through song only. Critics complain that, unlike Hamilton, audience members come out historically dumber than when they went in.

Is Six Good for Kids?

This show serves as an entertaining, but inaccurate, history lesson to all of its viewers and will keep children entertained thanks to its modern integration and delivery. However, the show does discuss topics like death, executions and venereal disease, making it not suitable for children under 10.
