First of all, Happy International Women’s Day!
Tonight, I went to see the new show Six, which transferred recently from Chicago, having played in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe. It tells the stories of Henry VIII’s six wives: Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr…but guys, there’s no Henry VIII in this musical and the ladies sing in various pop styles as a quasi-girl group.
The show was a lot of fun and the music was awesome–each wife has her own style of music and musical inspiration and each wife had a song to tell the audience about things she suffered in her life or while married to Henry VIII.
(Speaking of, Anna of Cleves made out the best out of alllll of the wives, I think)
