SIX is a fabulous and fun contemporary musical filled with catchy pop-style songs and a relevant and timely girl power message
Last week, I attended the Opening Night of the Tony Award winning musical SIX at the Hollywood Pantages and it was a fabulous and fun evening of girl power, catchy pop songs and big ballads and one of the most entertaining musicals that I have seen in a long time!
SIX is an uplifting and infectious musical about the six wives of Henry VIII who decide to challenge history by engaging in modern day pop-style song battle to determine who was the late king’s favorite wife. These six diverse divas take the microphone to remix five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an electrifying celebration of contemporary feminism and girl power!
Each of the six queens gets her time to shine and sing her own featured song to tell her story with each diva channeling the likes of Beyonce, Britney Spears, Adele, Ariana Grande and Rihanna to name a few. This clever pop-music-meets-history concept felt like you were attending a spectacular Broadway style concert for some of today’s best pop stars and at times it reminded me of the category busting Hamilton.
From the clever and catchy lyrics, to playful staging and concert style lighting, SIX is a fun, upbeat musical that makes you want to get up on your feet and dance and hoot, holler and cheer because it is so much fun!
The six actresses portraying Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr are a talented bunch of women, all with powerful pop-style voices and cheeky performance elements and nuances that personify each of their different characters. Not only is the music fabulous and catchy, I especially LOVE the girl power message of this show that is very timely and relevant today!
If you like big bold Broadway musicals with inspired choreography, catchy music and an uplifting feel good message, make sure to get tickets to the North American Tour of SIX during it’s Southern California run now through June 25, 2023.
