Centurion Award winner “Six” will become the first West End musical to return to the stage this summer, albeit in a very different fashion.  Because theaters in the United Kingdom remain closed during the pandemic, the show will perform at open-air sites with the audience seated in their vehicles,  in the manner of a drive-in theater.

Using two casts, “Six” will be performed in 12 open-air venues across Britain.  Each drive-in will be able to accommodate approximately 300 vehicles, with a limit of seven people per vehicle.

“Six” is a modern retelling, pop-concert style, of the story of the six wives of Henry VIII, Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Catherine Parr.

Plans call for the performance to be the same as it was in the Arts Theatre in the West End, including the live Ladies in Waiting band.

The Arts Theatre cast will perform in Birmingham, Cheltenham, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Newmarket, Lincoln, and Teeside, while the U.K. tour cast will take the stage in Bolton, Bristol, Edinburgh, Liverpool, and Northway Village near London.
