Smash hit musical SIX comes to Liverpool Playhouse for Christmas
12 months ago
The international smash hit musical SIX makes a royal return to Liverpool Playhouse from Tuesday 6 December 2022 to Sunday 8 January 2023.
From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.
Winner of the 2022 Whatsonstage Award for ‘Best West End Show’ with a Gold-Disk winning album, this sell-out Tudor take-off has ‘an incredibly strong and powerful message’ (The Australian) and is ‘pure entertainment’ (The New York Times).
On announcing the show, Suba Das Creative Director for the Everyman and Playhouse Theatres said:
“SIX enjoyed a sell-out week at the Playhouse in March 2020 and we’re thrilled to have it back again. We know Liverpool loves a musical and this is one of the best. We can’t wait to welcome back the Queens!”
Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, SIX is co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, featuring choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille. The design team includes Emma Bailey (Set Design), Gabriella Slade (Costume Design), Paul Gatehouse (Sound Design) and Tim Deiling (Lighting Design). The score features orchestrations by Tom Curran with music supervision and vocal arrangements by Joe Beighton. Associate Choreographer Freya Sands, Musical Director Katy Richardson, Associate Musical Director Arlene McNaught. SIX is produced by Kenny Wax, Wendy & Andy Barnes and George Stiles.
