SIX the musical will run at the West End’s Arts Theatre until January next year, with more than 90,000 extra tickets now on sale.
Having recently celebrated its first birthday in the capital, the show takes a look at the individual stories of Henry VIII’s six wives through a 75-minute performance.
Its cast also welcomed a new queen as of the 21st January in Sophie Issacs, taking over the role of Katherine Howard.
Sophie starred as Heather McNamara in the West End musical Heathers and was recently Goldilocks in Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the London Palladium.
Her other musical theatre credits include Frenchy in Grease, Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray and Margot in Legally Blonde.
SIX was due to close in July this year, but will run for longer due to its popularity, with its studio album getting 400,000 streams daily across multiple platforms.
“From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic in SIX to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.”
