This event has passed

Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. All this time, the six wives of Henry VIII have been reduced to a single rhyme—so they picked up a pen and a microphone. From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the wives take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.

This production contains strobe, haze, and choreography and gestures that are sexual in nature.

George Stiles

George’s writing credits include The Three Musketeers, Peter Pan – A Musical Adventure, and the score for Barbara Gaines’ production of Troilus & Cressida. A native of the UK, George is best known as an award-winning composer of stage musicals such as Mary Poppins, Honk!, Betty Blue Eyes, Peter Pan – A Musical Adventure, and Soho Cinders—all written with lyricist Anthony Drewe. However, he’s delighted to be making his debut as a producer with SIX, having seen the 2017 student production in Cambridge, England, and got more excited than his doctor recommends. He’s also very happy to be working with his old friends Rick Boynton, Criss Henderson, and Barbara Gaines once more, as well as three champions of new British musicals, Kenny Wax and Wendy & Andy Barnes. George has long had a deep passion for nurturing new writing through MercuryMusicals.com and the annual Stiles + Drewe Prize. If you’re a young writer inspired by what you see tonight, then get creative—it happened for Marlow and Moss!
