“Did I adore Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’ musical that gives Henry V111’s wives a chance to tell their story when I first saw it at the Arts Theatre? No, I would never have predicted its global success. But that’s theatre critics for you, we are always getting it wrong. But I did think that it had enormous potential and I did think it was huge fun, and fun is exactly what we all need just at the moment. So, it’s a big welcome back from me to this most rambunctious of shows, one that has brought such enormous pleasure to so many and which has provided so many debut female actors a chance to really shine. Part of the move by Nimax’s Nica Burns to get her stable of theatre’s open again, the show will run for 11 weeks in the West End from November 14. That’s good news you could lose your head over.”


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.

Online Venue Check-In: Please note you will be contacted by the venue 48 hours before the performance with instructions on how to check-in and retrieve your e-ticket.

Critic reviews

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

Broadway World

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

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

Evening Standard

This is a madcap, frenetic, hugely entertaining history remix


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

The Stage

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

Time Out

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

The Telegraph

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

Everything Theatre

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
