The Broadway production of Six officially opened October 3 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, after its initial Broadway debut was put on hold for over a year and a half due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The U.K.-born musical, a pop-concert-meets-history-lesson celebration of Henry VIII’s ill-fated wives, had begun performances in New York February 13, 2020, having previously played a stateside, multi-city regional circuit.
