Arts Theatre · 17 JAN - 05 JUL

If you thought this show was all about one man – you thought wrong!

“Six didn't become a sensation overnight. This modern retelling of the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII was first performed at the Edinburgh Festival by Cambridge University students who wrote it when they should have been revising for their exams. It's been honed since then and its brilliantly sassy run at the Arts Theatre has now been extended into 2020. Go! Duh...”


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 a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.

Critic reviews

Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour and co tell their stories in a lively new musical that makes serious points about how women are erased from history

The Guardian

Six unheard stories from six women known only for their man. A fantastic tale of the six Queens history left behind.

Everything Theatre

It has its own manifest cheeky British personality – and a dynamism that matches the best the West End has to offer

The Telegraph

A totes hilarious (but vacuous) pop musical about Henry VIII's wives

Time Out

Tudor history goes pop in musical reimagining as told by a girl band made up of Henry VIII’s wives

The Stage

This is a madcap, frenetic, hugely entertaining history remix


Kick-ass musical about Henry VIII's wives channels its inner Beyonce

Evening Standard

It is no surprise that the show has picked up five Olivier nominations: one feels that more accolades will come to a production which has a long, long future ahead of it

Musical Theatre Review

Empowerment is the order of the day and it's served up in heaps
