The most talked about new musical of the past year is coming to the Midlands fresh from its success in London's West End.



Smash hit Six The Musical will be performed at Malvern Theatres from October 29 to November 3 and then at Birmingham Hippodrome from July 21 to 25 in 2020.

Six is about the six wives of Henry VIII and was nominated for five Olivier Awards this year including Best New Musical, Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.

The Tudor queens are glamorised in a fresh new way as pop princesses with each of them taking to the mic to tell their personal story in the show written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss.



Retelling the famous "divorced- beheaded - died - divorced - beheaded - survived" story from history, the musical is described as a 75-minute "celebration of 21st Century girl power" with the characters even having an all-female band, The Ladies in Waiting.

The show first appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018 and opened in the West End in January this year. It's proved so popular that songs from the musical have received more than 2 million weekly streams and gone into the charts.



The Six UK tour comes as the show also heads around the world to stages as far as Australia and America.

Chris Sudworth, Director of Artistic Programme at Birmingham Hippodrome said: "We are incredibly excited to be bringing this hit home-grown British musical to Birmingham for the very first time."

He added: "From seeing the show during its very beginnings at the Edinburgh Festival, I have watched this production grow and grow in popularity, gaining rave reviews and sell-out standing ovations and now we can't wait for our audiences to experience this very special show."



Age guidance for the show is 10 and it is around 75 minutes long with no interval.

The UK tour also includes cities Glasgow, Oxford, Salford, Bath and more and details can be found at the [LINK=https://www.sixthemusical.com/uk-tour]Six Musical tour website.
