Henry VIII’s Wives Reign Supreme in Broadway Across Canada’s SIX

From May 21 to May 26, 2024, buckle up for the ultimate royal rumble as Broadway Across Canada brings its sensational production SIX by Tony Award-winners Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss to the National Arts Centre.

SIX isn’t just any musical; it’s a royal sensation that has taken the theatre world by storm. In the 2021/2022 Broadway season, SIX swept through the awards circuit, clinching a staggering 23 awards. Among its glittering achievements are the prestigious Tony Award for Best Original Score (Music and Lyrics) and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical.

The SIX: LIVE ON OPENING NIGHT Broadway album debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Cast album charts and surpassed six million streams in its first month.

But what exactly makes SIX so special? Picture this: six fierce and fabulous queens from history step out of the shadows of their legendary husbands to tell their own stories, and boy, do they have stories to tell. From the scandalous affairs of Anne Boleyn to the powerhouse reign of Catherine of Aragon, these queens are not here to play second fiddle – they’re taking centre stage and owning every moment.

With a fusion of historical drama, music, and electrifying performances, SIX is the ultimate girls’ night out or a perfect evening for anyone who loves a good story with a modern twist.

Whether you’re a history buff, a musical theatre fanatic, or just looking for a night of pure entertainment, SIX has something for everyone.

Tickets for all eight shows can be purchased via Ticketmaster.
