‘SIX The Musical’ Soundtrack is Out Now and It’s A-MA-ZING

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’.

Following the lives of Henry VIII’s six wives (Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived), the musical is a modern-day twist on history and sees each wife take to the mic to tell their story through the medium of modern-day pop.
Following its impressive debut at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the show is currently at the Arts Theatre in London and will be heading across the country later this year.
We spoke to creator and writer Toby Marlow earlier this year as he prepared to take ‘Hot Gay Time Machine’ to the Fringe festival. Talking about ‘SIX The Musical’, he told us:

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):

  1. “Ex-Wives”
  2. “No Way”
  3. “Don’t Lose Ur Head”
  4. “Heart of Stone”
  5. “Haus of Holbein”
  6. “Get Down”
  7. “All You Wanna Do”
  8. “I Don’t Need Your Love”
  9. “Six”

Following SIX’s run at the Arts Theatre, the show moves to The Rose Theatre in Kingston, The Nuffield in Southampton, The Quays at the Lowry and the Lomond Auditorium at the SEC in Glasgow. See SIXTHEMUSICAL.COM for dates.
