SIX is the smash hit musical in which the six wives of Henry VIII take the mic to tell their tale, remixing five hundred years of her-storical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of sisterly sass-itude.
Now, the show's run at the West End's Arts Theatre has been extended once more with 90,000 extra tickets on sale, stretching the booking period into next year - up to 31 January 2021.
Singalong performances have also been scheduled for Tuesday 28 July at 4pm
and Wednesday 4 November at 8pm.
Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, SIX's 2018 debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe hastened its West End transfer which opened in January 2019.
The production is currently enjoying sold-out houses at the Arts Theatre while selling out theatres across the UK in a 33-venue tour which continues through to this summer.
And on Tuesday 21 January, the West End production welcomes a new royal as Sophie Isaacs will wear the crown for the first time as Katherine Howard.
Sophie starred as Heather McNamara in the cult West End hit musical 'Heathers' and recently was Goldilocks in 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the London Palladium.
Her other major musical theatre roles include Annette in the sold-out critically acclaimed European premiere of 'Cruel Intentions the musical' at last year's Fringe, Janet in 'The Rocky Horror Show', Frenchy in 'Grease', Sandra Beaumont in 'Made In Dagenham', Amber Von Tussle in 'Hairspray' and Margot in 'Legally Blonde'.
The soundtrack for SIX has stormed the charts with 400,000 streams per day across Spotify and Apple Music platforms and has amassed over 90 million streams since its release making it the second highest streamed theatre cast album in the world.
An Australian production opened this week at Sydney Opera House and is scheduled to tour to Melbourne and Adelaide.
SIX also starts previews at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre on February 13, ahead of opening night on March 12.
And, later this year, SIX will once again fetch up in Chicago, where it made its North American premiere, for an open-ended run from July 8.
