Review: SIX at National Theatre Photo Review: SIX at National Theatre
by David Friscic - Jul 17, 2022

Misogyny and patriarchy in Tudor history (Tudor Dynasty) in all its perfidy, comes to life as the six wives of Henry VIII come to musical life ---bloodied but unbowed in the much-ballyhooed musical SIX now playing at the National Theatre. ¬†Two university students, Toby Marlow, and Lucy Moss conceived the intriguing book, music and lyrics for this multi-layered musical that speaks to any demographic. The music and lyrics jump out at you with snappy, rollicking, cutting-edge songs that are given ‚Äúdiva-esque‚ÄĚ renditions by the six actresses playing the roles of the wives of Henry VIII. The stage at the National explodes in a riot of music, ‚Äúout of the stratosphere‚ÄĚ energy, and vibrant, pulsating lights and costumes---all compressed within eighty high-energy minutes.¬†
