Reimagine Catherine of Aragon as Beyonce and Katherine Howard as Ariana Grande and you’ve essentially got the formula for the latest West End hit ‘SIX The Musical’.
I knew I wanted to write a show about a group of historical women, with original pop songs as the score, and something that played around the with the traditional forms of musical theatre. Then I was in a class at Uni and was suddenly like “WAIT WHAT IF IT’S THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII BUT THEY’RE A GIRL GROUP AND THE SHOW IS A POP CONCERT”. Next day I rang Lucy, and the rest is her-story.
For those who have already seen the show and were impressed by its impressive numbers (or those who want to spoil the surprise before they get to see the show!), the soundtrack to ‘SIX: The Musical’ is now available featuring nine of the show’s stunning tracks. All tracks were written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss.
Full tracklisting for SIX: The Musical (Studio Cast Recording):
- “No Way”
- “Don’t Lose Ur Head”
- “Heart of Stone”
