A Playlist for The Six Wives of Henry VIII

A Playlist for The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Now that we've delved into the Tudor dynasty and explored the lives of the Six Wives of Henry VIII, let's infuse some vibrant energy into Queendom with the lively, satirical tunes of 'Six: The Musical.' This captivating creation, penned in 2017 by college students Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, offers a contemporary twist on the tale. 'Six' reimagines Henry VIII's wives engaging in a song contest (aka American Idol or The Voice) to vie for the title of the king's most unfortunate spouse. Boasting catchy tunes, humorous dialogue, and a strong message of Female Empowerment, the musical made its live debut in London's West End in 2019 and has since embarked on a global tour. What a super cool couple of college kids.
