The production was previously set to have its opening the very day Broadway shut down on March 12, 2020, with the performance cancelled just a few hours before the curtain was to go up.

Creators Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss said “It feels so unreal to be writing this, but we are both unbelievably excited Broadway is returning and that SIX will finally open on Broadway!!! And this is not just because we can’t wait to be reunited with our Broadway family, but also because SIX opening means that the theatre industry is on the road to returning!! Soon the theatre community will be able to come together after a year of unimaginable challenges – and THIS is what fills us with just absurd and ridiculous amounts of happiness. WOOOO!”

Producer Kevin McCollum said “The opening of SIX on Broadway is going to be epic! The SIX family is beyond excited to share our production with Broadway and the entire country. We look forward to welcoming our incredible fans and new audiences safely back into the theatre. To say it’s been a long time coming would be an understatement and we are profoundly grateful to begin…anew.”

 SIX  has become a global phenomenon since its early days as a student production in a 100-seat venue during the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As the pandemic struck,  SIX  was playing to sold out houses in London’s West End, across the UK and Australia.

 Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived . From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, in SIX the wives of Henry VIII take the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a celebration of 21 st century girl power. The female cast is backed by an all-female band, the “Ladies in Waiting.”

 SIX is co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage and features choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille . The design team includes Emma Bailey (Set Design), Gabriella Slade (Costume Design), Tim Deiling (Lighting Design), and Paul Gatehouse (Sound Design). The score features orchestrations by Tom Curran with music supervision and vocal arrangements by Joe Beighton and U.S. Music Supervision by Roberta Duchak . Casting is by Tara Rubin Casting / Peter Van Dam, CSA with original US casting by Bob Mason. Theater Matters is General Manager, Sam Levy is Associate Producer and Lucas McMahon is U.S. Executive Producer.

 SIX and The Brooks Atkinson Theatre will follow New York State, New York City and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of all actors, production staff, theatre employees, and audience members. As public health conditions and the State’s guidance for performing arts and live entertainment changes, the theatre will remain flexible and adapt to applicable health protocols, such as face coverings, health screening, enhanced air filtration and ventilation, and rigorous cleaning and disinfection.

We are so grateful that we get to share our show with an even wider audience, especially somewhere as iconic as the home of musical theatre – BROADWAY BABY!! The whole team across the pond are ridiculously amazing, and we can’t wait to share the show with you – NYC, thanks for having us!!!”

“From its student beginnings at the Edinburgh Festival, via the West End we’re absolutely thrilled to bring SIX to Broadway,” said the producers. “Toby and Lucy have created an empowering musical about six of the most misrepresented women in history that couldn’t be more timely.  We can’t wait for New York audiences to see the production at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.”

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 JoeBeighton.

24-year-old Toby Marlow and 25-year-old Lucy Moss devised the original concept and started writing SIX when they were students at Cambridge University in early 2017. It was first presented as the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society’s submission to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe later that year, playing a one-month run and featuring student actors. SIX went on to get picked up by UK Producers and a new production was mounted, with professional actors and a predominantly new creative team, at the Norwich Playhouse and then again at Edinburgh Festival in 2018. A limited engagement at the Arts Theatre in London garnered the WhatsOnStage Award for Best Off-West End Production and the show toured the UK in the autumn of 2018 before reopening at the Arts Theatre in January 2019, where it is now playing an open-ended West End run to sold out houses. SIX earned five Laurence Olivier Award nominations this year, including Best New Musical. A UK tour opens in October 2019 and will run concurrently with the London production.

Partnering with US Producer Kevin McCollum, SIX made its North American premiere in May of this year at Chicago Shakespeare Theater in Chicago, IL in a record-breaking run ending this Sunday, August 4. Prior to Broadway, the show will play limited engagements at American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) in Cambridge, MA (August 21 – September 7), the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton, AB Canada (November 2-24) and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Saint Paul, MN (November 29 – December 22).

Sir Matthew Bourne OBE has been announced as the recipient of this year’s Special Award at the Olivier Awards 2019 with Mastercard, in recognition of his extraordinary achievements in dance.

Hailed by many as the UK’s most successful living choreographer and director, Bourne has created and directed dance for musicals, theatre and film for 30 years, receiving numerous international accolades including seven Olivier Awards. This Special Award will be Bourne’s eighth Olivier Award, making him joint holder of the most ever Olivier Awards, alongside Judi Dench.

‘The Society of London Theatre is delighted to acknowledge Matthew Bourne’s extraordinary achievements in dance with this year’s Special Olivier Award. Matthew has transformed the landscape of dance in this country and across the globe with his bold, innovative and popular work, loved by audiences around the world.’

As Artistic Director of his first company, Adventures in Motion Pictures (1987 – 2002), Bourne’s award-winning work included SpitfireNutcracker!Highland FlingCinderella andThe Car Man – as well as Swan Lake, which went on to become the longest-running ballet in the West End and on Broadway, and be performed all over the world.

In 2002, with Co-Director Robert Noble, Bourne launched New Adventures, now a hugely influential exporter of British dance around the world. With the company, Bourne has premiered iconic productions including Play Without Words, Edward Scissorhands, Sleeping Beauty and The Red Shoes. 2019 sees the world premiere of Bourne’s 12th full-length production, Romeo and Juliet, which involves young dance talent from across the UK performing alongside the New Adventures company.

Bourne has created choreography for several major musicals, including Cameron Mackintosh’s productions of Oliver! and My Fair Lady, the National Theatre’s revival of South Pacific, and the 2004 production of Mary Poppins (with Stephen Mear), which returns to the West End later this year.
