Productions of SIX are currently mounted on Broadway and London's West End, with four tours currently running worldwide across the U.K. and Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, and North America. In 2022, it received eight Tony nominations, taking home the wins for Best Costume Design of a Musical (Slade) and Best Original Score (Marlow and Moss).
The Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss musical features choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabriella Slade, lighting design by Tim Deiling, and sound design by Paul Gatehouse. The production also has orchestrations by Tom Curran with music supervision and vocal arrangements by Joe Beighton, U.S. Music Supervision by Roberta Duchak, and casting by Peter Van Dam from Tara Rubin Casting.
Named the "Boleyn" tour, this national tour runs concurrently with the "Aragon" tour, which began earlier this year and has dates announced through July, 2023.
