Six the Musical is finally coming to Manila this October!

Direct from the West End, Kenny Wax, Wendy & Andy Barnes and George Stiles, in association with GMG Productions, is set to stage the musical from October 4 to October 20, 2024 for a strictly limited season at The Theatre at Solaire.

Six tells the story of the six wives of King Henry VIII, who step out of the shadow of their infamous husband and reclaim their own narratives. Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, the modern-pop inspired musical brings these historical figures to life, portraying them as fierce and influential pop stars in their own right. Audiences are taken on a journey through the lives of Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr, each taking back control of their own story.

Six made its debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017 and opened in the West End in 2019, where it was nominated for 5 Olivier Awards including Best New Musical. It then opened on Broadway in 2021, where it was nominated for 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical and won 2, including Best Original Score for Marlow and Moss.

The production has been seen by over 3.5 million people worldwide every year since its premiere, and has toured internationally in the United States, Canada, Australia, and South Korea.

Carlos Candal, GMG Productions’ CEO, expressed his excitement, “Bringing Six The Musical to Manila is a momentous occasion. The energy and impact of this production are unparalleled, and we believe Manila audiences are in for a royal treat. This is not just a show but an experience that celebrates the strength and resilience of women in a way that is both entertaining and empowering.”
