CORONAVIRUS: Latest updates here.
Following a spectacular North American premiere right here is Chicago, this high energy tribute to Henry VIII's six wives returns to the Windy City in 2020 for a limited 16-week run! Created by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, this musical celebration of 16th Century girl power debuted on the West End in 2018 to fantastic reviews and is set to conquer both Broadway and Australia in the coming months. Much like Hamilton, Six injects its historical story with modern-day attitudes and modern-day music, serving up a dizzying whirl of pop and comedy, and an all-female cast.
Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, Katherine Parr. You know the names, and you may know how each of their marriages to a certain king came to an end, but these six women are far from just a historical footnote. In Six, the floor is theirs as they tell you what really went down in the court of Henry VIII.
Opening night: 29 March 2022
75 minutes, no intermission

Uplifting SISTERLY sassiness
The transformation of the wives into a modern-day girl pop group, vying for X factor type glory...is a brilliant adaptation
The Spice Girls might have reunited but they've got a run for their money in the unexpected form of Henry VIII's wives. But unlike their static portraits (and positions in history), these girls can sing and dance and put on a dazzling performance.Read full review
