THE WIVES of Henry VIII will be alive and kicking next year as Six The Musical comes to Leeds Grand. The West End version of show was nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best New Musical and went on to sell-out performances across the world.

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.

These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red – and it's time they told their story – divorced, beheaded, live.

The Evening Standard said Six was: "The most uplifting new British musical I have ever had the privilege to watch" while the Time said it was sassy, funny, sexy and funky.

The musical was written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, and the cast are backed by the show’s all-female band, The Ladies in Waiting.

A spokesman said: “The Six phenomenon shows no sign of abating. Two years to the day since the show premiered as a student production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Six announced its Broadway transfer to the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York following sold out runs in Chicago and Boston.

“Back in London where Six sold out every seat for every performance at the Arts Theatre, the show was nominated for five 2019 OIivier Awards, including Best New Musical, Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.”

"The songs from the show have proved to be a chart storming sensation racking up 50 million streams and adding 300,000 daily. Ann Boleyn’s song Don’t Lose Ur Head has been shared over half a billion times.”

Heathers The Musical can be seen at the Grand on November 3-7 with its tale of dark deeds in an American high school.

The national tour follows two record-breaking seasons at London’s The Other Palace and West End transfer to the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2018, and a WhatsOnStage 2019 award for Best New Musical.

Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills, this high-octane black comedy and rock musical is based on the cult teen film that starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

Welcome to Westerberg High, where popularity is so very a matter of life and death, and Veronica Sawyer is just another of the nobodies dreaming of a better day.
