SIX The Musical Is Back in 2024
SIX The Musical returns to Australia in 2024, playing at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre from August, Theatre Royal Sydney from October and at QPAC’s Playhouse in Brisbane from January 2025.
“SIX is truly a global phenomenon and the record-breaking Australian production enjoyed rapturous acclaim by both critics and audiences alike, said producer Louise Withers.
“The incredible anticipation and demand from fans after achieving the success it did here in Australia on its previous tour has been a major force to bring the phenomenal production back to our stages. We are beyond thrilled that SIX will be returning next year and we look forward to making more fans and breaking more records along the way!”
SIX tells the story of the six wives of King Henry VIll who step out of the shadow of their infamous husband and reclaim their own narratives. Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, this modern pop-inspired musical brings these historical figures to life, portraying them as fierce and influential pop stars in their own right. Audiences are taken on a journey through the lives of Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr, each telling their own story and reclaiming their own narrative.
Since its debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, SIX has received widespread critical acclaim. It swiftly moved to the West End, and has continued to garner international recognition with productions in Australia, Canada, the United States, and Korea.
SIX has won 35 major international awards, including two Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Best Costume Design, and a Grammy nomination for Best Musical Theatre Album. Notably SIX author and Co-Director Lucy Moss is the youngest female-identifying person to direct a Broadway musical in over 40 years.
