Divorced, beheaded, died; divorced, beheaded, survived. This spring, Chicago Shakespeare stages the critically acclaimed new musical SIX, following its debut in the United Kingdom and celebrated West End run. The six wives of King Henry VIII join forces for an electrifying musical celebration of empowerment—shining a spotlight on women who are so much more than the history books might lead us to believe. The all-woman cast, backed by an all-woman band known as the “Ladies in Waiting,” traverses the spectrum of modern-day pop with a soundtrack that has stormed up the UK charts. The queens take the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an exuberant celebration of twenty-first-century girl power.
