Edgy, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you want to enjoy a short, but sweet evening of great and captivating pop music, telling the stories of Henry VIII and his ex wives.

Don't see it if you expect a full length traditional musical- this is staged as a pop concert complete with all the lights and flair you might expect!

Funny, Fun, Clever

See it if you like something short and sweet!

Don't see it if you're expecting a musical. It's not a musical. It's good... but it's not a musical.

Must see, Clever, Great writing, Great singing

See it if you like catchy pop songs. I guarantee you'll leave the theatre singing at least one of them.

Don't see it if you want a full-length show. The only negative about "Six" is that it's too short.

Funny, Entertaining, Resonant, Relevant, Great singing

See it if you like the music and energy of the Spice Girls and other Brit Pop princesses. It's a short and fun show, not to be taken too seriously.

Don't see it if You're looking for a traditional plot and dramatic story arc. It's more like a concert.

Four years on from its Edinburgh Fringe debut, the show still feels like a breath of fresh air. The production is also a true ensemble effort ... You’d need a heart of stone to resist.

I suspect ‘Six’ will be a big hit. But if this is the future of feminism, lop my head off now.

A rather odd show. The costumes are garish, even comical. The singing is outstanding. But the stories told are not, lacking detail, substance and novelty, leading the songs to focus purely on the frivolous and facetious. Catchy music, funny jokes, but an ultimately forgettable performance.

For a previous production

There’s undoubtedly raw talent on display in the writing, and really accomplished vocal performances – but it currently feels undernourished and, even though it runs to just 70 minutes, overlong for what it is.

For a previous production

It may be cloaked in silliness, but Six makes some serious points about female victimhood and survival.

For a previous production

This is quite the most uplifting piece of new British musical theatre I have ever had the privilege to watch and the fact that it comes from two 23-year-olds, Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who graduated only last year, is even more delightful.

London Theatre
December 14th, 2020
For a previous production

The songs are insanely catchy, and if subtlety gets gleefully ground beneath the show’s rhinestone-studded stiletto heel, that’s not what anyone came for anyhow. It isn’t profound, but this is a party – and it’s unstoppable.

What's On Stage (UK)
September 3rd, 2018
For a previous production

This is a madcap, frenetic, hugely entertaining history remix. Right from the initial strains of its first song "Ex-Wives", you'll be wanting to get to pump your fist in the air and sing with Six.
