Global musical phenomenon Six is to transfer to a new West End home at the Vaudeville Theatre, with initial booking until May 2022.

The electrifying retelling of the stories of Henry VIII’s six wives has been running at the Lyric Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue since 21 May. It previously played at the Arts Theatre where it had its West End debut in 2017.

It will end its run at the Lyric on 29 August 2021 and reopen on 29 September 2021 at the Vaudeville Theatre – dubbed its new “forever home” – and will open “initial” booking until 1 May 2022.

Its current cast will remain with the show until 14 November 2021 and then an all-new cast – still to be announced – will take over from 16 November.

Tickets for Six at the Vaudeville Theatre will go on sale at 8am on Thursday 15 July via sixthemusical.com and nimaxtheatres.com.

The musical, written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, will simultaneously continue its UK tour which is currently playing the Theatre Royal in Newcastle upon Tyne and booking dates until September 2022.

Six will open at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway on 3 October 2021. Its opening night in New York City on 12 March 2020 was cancelled when Broadway was closed down three hours before the show was due to open.
