The cast for Six The Musical’s UK tour in 2021 has been confirmed – meet the Queens here!
Nominated for five Olivier Awards, SIX turns Tudor queens into pop princesses as 500 years of historical heartbreak becomes an hour of 21st century sass.
The show – written and composed by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss – has become a huge hit since first premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017.
Alongside its West End run, Six The Musical will be back touring the UK from June with a brand new cast announced for 2021.
