Fun, Funny, Great writing, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you love a good time gearing tunes that slap. This is clever and fun and you’ll leave smiling.

Don't see it if you want the vocals to be at the Broadway Six level. The US just has more people, it stands to reason w/a bigger pool we have better singers

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!

Clever, Funny, Fun

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.

London Theatre
November 11th, 2021

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.

“The challenge for a new cast is to find a way to make the roles their own, something that’s not a problem here. Indeed, no matter how many of the previous casts you’ve seen, this is the line-up you don’t want to miss. The 2023 Queens make SIX feel like an entirely new show”

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.

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.

For a previous production

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

The London Evening Standard

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.
