The Broadway musical "SIX," about the six wives of Henry VIII, comes to the Winspear Opera House Dec. 6-25

The musical transforms the lives of Henry VIII's six wives into a celebration of female pop stars, who must deal with an abusive husband and their own destructive fame.

The Tony Award-winning and chart-topping musical, Six, is coming to the Winspear Opera House for 24 performances Dec. 6-25, courtesy of Broadway Dallas. Individual tickets ($40-$155) go on sale tomorrow, Sept 16 at 10 am. They'll be available online at BroadwayDallas.org and by phone at 800-982-2787. (Orders for groups of ten or more may be placed by calling 214-426-4768 or emailing Groups@BroadwayDallas.org.)

The success of Six is like the come-from-nowhere rise into royalty of Anne Boleyn — without the eventual beheading. From its start as a Cambridge University show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to an Olivier Award-winning musical in London's West End to opening on Broadway, Six has overcome not just the usual hurdles of a show written by young, no-name first-timers (Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss) but also opening on Broadway in March 2022 — just when the pandemic shut down live theater in New York City.

The musical is now playing at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York, having won three Tony Awards (best original score, lyrics and costume design, natch) and is touring Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

SIX, which closed in March 2020 due to the pandemic on what was supposed to be opening night, is now playing at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway in New York City. The show had a successful North American Premiere at Chicago Shakespeare in the summer of 2019. Prior to Broadway, the show played limited engagements at American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) in Cambridge, MA, the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton, AB Canada, and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Saint Paul, MN.

SIX is co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, featuring choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille. The design team includes Emma Bailey (Set Design), Tony Award®-winner 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 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 is produced in the United States by Kenny Wax, Wendy & Andy Barnes, George Stiles, and Kevin McCollum.

Toby Marlow and 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 returning to the Arts Theatre and subsequently the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. SIX is currently playing an open-ended run at the Vaudeville Theatre on the Strand. SIX earned five 2019 Laurence Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical. A UK and Ireland tour is now running concurrently with the London production. An Australian and New Zealand tour will launch this year at Sydney Opera House with dates set for Melbourne, Adelaide, and Wellington.
