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