SIX times three equals another chance to see Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’s “Spouse Girls” revenge musical at the Grand Opera House, York, from October 14 to 18.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday morning at atgtickets.com/york for the royal return of the West End and Broadway hit that enjoyed sold-out runs at the Cumberland Street theatre in October 2022 and June 2023.

Remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power, Marlow and Moss’s all-female show for the millennial age reactivates the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII in modern mode, with attitude. Call it gig theatre, call it a pop concert, wherein the Queens tell their story in song in chronological order to decide who suffered most at Henry’s hands once he put a ring on that wedding finger.

Premiered by the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society in a 100-seat room at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, SIX The Musical has grown into a global phenomenon. Productions are playing on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York, and across the United States on tour, while the West End production continues its third royal residence at the Vaudeville Theatre and the UK tour is booking through to 2025, selling out wherever it goes.

The SIX cast has performed on the results show of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and BBC’s Children in Need Appeal Show; the show’s songs have attracted 300 million streams and three billion views on TikTok, and the original studio album has achieved gold status, marking 100,000 sales in the UK.
