The musical takes place at the Lena Horne Theatre
Built in 1926 and originally called the Mansfield Theater, it was renamed in 1960 in honor of the influential New York Times drama critic, Brooks Atkinson. An important milestone came on November 1, 2022, when the theater received a new name, the Lena Horne Theatre, as a tribute to the legendary artist and civil rights activist. This renamed theater became the first Broadway theater to be named after a black woman.
The Lena Horne Theater has 1,069 seats and is popular with theatergoers. Many outstanding dramas and comedies have been presented here, starring such talents as Matthew Broderick, Glenn Close, Richard Dreyfuss, Gene Hackman, Ed Harris, Derek Jacobi, Nathan Lane, Gary Sinise, Jerry Stiller and Marisa Tomei.
In 2000, the theater underwent a restoration and refurbishment of the original chandelier, removed over 40 years ago. The popular musical SIX is currently running at the Lena Horne Theater.

The story of King Henry VIII’s consorts
You may know the legend of King Henry VIII and his many marriages. Henry was a king with a difficult character, divorced several times and even executed his spouses. The era of his marriages is remembered by the phrase “divorced – executed – died – divorced – executed – survived”. However, until now, their story has not been told from their point of view.
The musical “SIX” presents the story of King Henry VIII’s six wives who band together to form an all-female pop group. They compete for the role of lead singer based on which one of them has suffered the most from Henry. “SIX” tells the lives of these six wives in a modern way, presenting their stories in the form of a pop concert. In the musical, each queen shares her fate in turn, trying to determine which of them suffered the most in their marriage to Henry. The music, lyrics and script were created by Toby Marlowe and Lucy Moss.
The lives of Henry VIII’s wives were difficult: divorces, executions, humiliation. This musical, filled with energy and power, gives the King’s wives a chance to tell their story. It begins with the queens announcing their desire to form a band and deciding to hold a contest to determine which of them suffered the most in their marriage to Henry.
Catherine of Aragon begins the contest by revealing how Henry cheated on her and then expressing his desire to leave her for Anne Boleyn, even considering sending Catherine herself to a nunnery. Anne, for her part, lightly mocks Catherine, claiming that Henry wanted her more, but then reporting that his interest in her began to wane after the wedding. Anne’s attempts to flirt with other men to arouse Henry’s jealousy ultimately led only to her execution.
The third speaker is Jane Seymour. Before she speaks, the other queens begin to mock her, claiming that she can’t be in trouble because Henry loved her and she bore him a son. Jane explains that sometimes she had a hard time because of Henry’s character, but she tried to reconcile with it and stay at his side despite all the difficulties.
Jane’s musical number is followed by a digression in which the queens share details about the home of the artist Hans Holbein and the less-than-careful methods of grooming adopted among medieval ladies. At this point it becomes clear that it was Holbein’s portrait of Anne of Cleves that served as the basis for Henry’s assessment of her appearance.
The choice of a future wife for Henry is presented in the format of a parody of a dating app like Tinder. Henry chose Anne based on her portrait, but after meeting her in person, he found her unattractive, opting for a divorce. In return, however, he offered her compensation in the form of money and a castle. Anne, with irony in her voice, recounts how she had to suffer through getting her castle and a substantial reward after Henry’s refusal, with no one to point her out to in the end. The queens can’t help but notice that she doesn’t seem to be having a hard time. Anne agrees to this, refusing to participate in any further competition.
Catherine Howard then enters the stage, initially mocked by the others, knowing her perfectly well as “the least important Catherine”. Catherine herself, mocking their comments, begins her song in which she recounts her ordeal of sexual abuse and objectification, which ultimately led to her execution.
Catherine Parr is the last to take the stage, beginning her speech by expressing her opinion on the pointlessness of this competition. She points out that the queens are literally competing to discuss who has suffered more from abusive behavior. But her words are not taken seriously, and finally she has to take the microphone in her hands and start singing.
Catherine Parr talks about how she couldn’t marry her chosen one because Henry himself wanted her as a wife and she couldn’t refuse the king. But then she moves on to a song about how her life is more than just marriage to Henry. The queens finally realize her feelings and begin to support Catherine by entering into her song and expressing their own opinions that they do not want Henry’s love.
In the finale, all six queens revise their stories, eliminating the main chapter about their marriage to Henry (except perhaps Jane), giving their lives a happy ending.
A story retold in the colorful pop tunes of today
Throughout the performance, they reminisce about how the King treated them in a bad way centuries ago. Pop tunes inspired by the style of Adele, Ariana Grande and Rihanna are played. They playfully parody Tinder and discuss the possibility of creating their own version of “they lived happily ever after” rather than coming to terms with the tragic twists and turns of their fate. SIX is a modern take on the story, spiced with a dose of magic. There is no room for ordinariness in the performance. There is a breaking of the so-called “fourth wall” and the audience is encouraged to pull out their phones and videotape a few songs that appeal to today’s pop culture. This gives the story an extra interesting twist.
The story of how SIX musicals came about.
At the end of 2016, Cambridge University Arts Society commissioned Toby Marlow to create a new musical to be performed at the Edinburgh Festival the following summer. The story of ‘Six’ came to Toby in his final year of study. The whole project began during a poetry lesson when Marlow invited his friend Lucy Moss to join in. Toby read ‘The Six Wives of Henry VIII’ by Antonia Fraser and Lucy studied Lucy Worsley’s documentary series ‘Six Wives’. While creating together, they enjoyed Beyoncé’s 2011 concert and performance of Live at Roseland: Elements of 4.
When creating the characters, they drew inspiration from various popular female performers. Catherine of Aragon was inspired by the style of Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Jennifer Hudson. The song “No Way” used snippets of Catherine’s actual statements in Blackfriars. Anne Boleyn combined elements of the styles of Avril Lavigne, Miley Cyrus and Lily Allen. Details in the production, such as the tufts in her hair, are a reference to Miley Cyrus’ look. The green in Boleyn’s costume also symbolizes “Greensleeves,” Henry VIII’s supposed song for Anne. Jane Seymour imitates the style of Adele, Sia, Rihanna and Celine Dion, and her black and white corset brings to mind associations with half-timbered houses. Anna Klewska emits the energy of tracks like “Feeling Myself” by Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé, “Royals” by Lorde and “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX. Catherine Howard succumbs to the influence of young, sexualized pop stars such as Britney Spears and Ariana Grande. Her costume features a choker, symbolizing her decapitation. Catherine Parr finds inspiration in the style of Alicia Keys and Emeli Sandé.
Marlowe and Moss bring up the lack of gender diversity in the theater industry, and decide that casts should be predominantly female or non-binary.
