An Eastbourne Theatres spokesperson said: “A sold-out hit in the West End, on its UK Tour, at the Sydney Opera House and now reigning on Broadway, the multi Olivier Award nominated, international smash hit Six is the phenomenon everyone is losing their head over!

“From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of her-storical heartbreak into an 80-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red. It’s time they told their story.”

The show has been nominated for five 2019 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.
