Six wives of Henry VIII take over The Lowry this Christmas in new musical

/

Six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to retell their stories in ‘SIX,’ a 75minute celebration of 21st century sisterly sass-itude coming to The Lowry for a Christmas run Tue 4 – Sun 16 December. 

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, ‘SIX’ is a 75 minute celebration of sisterly sass-itude remixing 500 years of her-storical heartbreak

‘SIX’ has already sold over 10,000 tickets and earned a clutch of 5-star reviews at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Powered by an all-female band and with songs including ‘Ex-Wives,’ ‘Haus of Holbein’ and ‘Don’t Lose Ur Head,’ this high-octane pop concert musical by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss is widely tipped to be one of the most exciting new West End shows of 2018.
