Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that SIX, the British pop musical about Henry VIII’s six wives, will debut onboard Norwegian Bliss, Breakaway and Getaway beginning next month.
From Tudor queens to pop princesses, SIX is a historical retelling of Henry VIII’s six wives. Each leading lady takes center stage to share her personal story and reclaim her identity, along with performances and music by an all-female band.
The show premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017, and it recently announced plans to debut at the Brooks Atkinson on Broadway in spring 2020. Aspiring young playwrights Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss wrote the show, and it was produced by Andy and Wendy Barnes of the Global Musicals theatre company, songwriter George Stiles, West End producer Kenny Wax and Kevin McCollum.
SIX will appear first on Norwegian Bliss on September 1, 2019, followed by Norwegian Breakaway on November 10, 2019, and Norwegian Getaway on April 23, 2020.
