Stranahan Theater | Toledo, Ohio
The depths of happiness in Musicals can be experienced this November in Toledo, Ohio when Six the Musical comes to perform at the Stranahan Theater stage on Thursday, Thursday 16th November 2023. The premise is remarkably simple. Six sees the wives of Henry VIII compete for the saddest tale. Anne Boleyn, played perfectly by the boisterous Millie O’Connell, insists that getting beheaded is the ultimate end to a difficult existence, something perhaps only the downtrodden and equally headless Catherine Howard (Aimie Atkinson) could match. Yet each of the title’s six has their own tale of woe, and more importantly, their own sense of empowerment to deliver. Don’t miss out on this unique event! Click the Buy Tickets button below.
On Thursday 16th November 2023 SIX: The Musical will resound within the walls of the Stranahan Theater with a passionate lyrical debate among the ex-wives of Henry VIII, tackling the age-old query: Who's the unluckiest of them all?
"SIX TOTALLY RULES! THE PLACE TO BE IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR REALLY EMPOWERED, EMPOWERING MEGASTARS." - The New York Times.
Meet the ill-fated dames of adversity, from the OG queen consort Catherine of Aragon to Catherine Parr, "the one who survived." SIX: The Musical bravely recasts over four decades of 16th-century heartbreaks into a Tudors Got Talent sing-off of 21st-century energy. Singing contagiously infectious tunes like "Ex-wives," "Don't Lose Ur Head," and "Megasix,'' this vibrantly dressed sextet will startle all those watching to their 80-minute homage to modern-day pop music and female dominance.
Guided and penned by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, SIX proudly displays the additional behind-the-scenes talents that won it countless awards, including the 2022 Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Costume Design, as well as an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Musical.
"As a originator, all you can aspire for is that somebody at a certain point takes something from [it], whether that's a laugh, or like to ponder once you've departed the theater, or a feeling that persists with you… I am very delighted and exceedingly grateful that we possess the possibility to provide this creation out there, which elicits uplifting and empowering emotions," reflects director/writer Toby Marlow in an interview earlier this year.
Do not stay quiet. Don't speak softly. Take these lessons to soul on Thursday 16th November 2023 when SIX: The Musical leaves its mark at the Stranahan Theater, Toledo. Purchase your tickets now!
