Six The Musical will come to The Marlowe Theatre in May next year as part of 2020 UK tour

by Lauren Abbott

It's been described as 'the most uplifting new British musical' and it's coming to Kent as part of its first UK tour.

Tickets for hit show Six the Musical's Kent dates are on general sale from this week.

Nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, the sell-out London smash hit featuring the tales of Henry VIII's wives in their own words, is soon set to embark on a tour which will see it stop in Canterbury next year.

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives are transformed into musical divas and will take to the mic to tell their tales - remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.

The musical started out as a show at the Edinburgh Fringe two years ago but since moving to the West End has sold out shows continuously in London and across the Atlantic in Chicago. Alongside its UK tour it is also set for dates on Broadway from next February.
