Relevant, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you enjoy learning about history in theatre, love pop music, or are just looking to have a great time. Great female empowerment piece.

See it if Pleasure for eyes and ears,good costumes,quality music which is not covering vocal,funny conversations between songs,cheerleading energy

Don't see it if It's a concert style show, not too much stuff on stage. A little too often"Hey, NY" from singers. History purist without sense of humor.

Refreshing, Pop concert vibe, Clever, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You want to have a fun night. Six supremely talented singers portray Henry VIII’s wives. They banter wittily in between fantastic songs.

Don't see it if You want a traditional musical. The threadbare “plot” is a contest to determine which wife had it worst. If you dislike pop, steer clear.

Also It’s hard to be critical about a show which pretty much consists of si... Read more Read less

Must see, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you're down for a smart, witty thrill ride of a show. Some powerhouse singing and dancing all neatly packed into 85 minutes.

Don't see it if you need a traditional story. This is by no means just a concert but the narrative is cleverly weaved rather than directly told.
