Yas, queen! Taking their crowns December 5, Hailee Kaleem Wright, Leandra Ellis-Gaston, Bella Coppola, Nasia Thomas, Zoe Jensen, and Taylor Iman Jones are the new queens of Broadway's SIX at the Lena Horne Theatre.
The Tudor pop musical now stars Wright (Paradise Square) as Catherine of Aragon, Ellis-Gaston (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical) as Anne Boleyn, Coppola (Kinky Boots) as Jane Seymour, Thomas (Caroline, or Change) as Anna of Cleves, Jensen (Dear Evan Hansen) as Katherine Howard, and Jones (Head Over Heels) as Catherine Parr. Joining the show's continuing alternates Ayla Ciccone-Burton and Holli' Conway are Marilyn Caserta, Kristina Leopold, and Aubrey Matalon.
The completely new cast of principals follows the December 4 departure of original cast members Brittney Mack, Andrea Macasaet, and Samantha Pauly, as well as Bre Jackson, Brennyn Lark, and Keri René Fuller. Original alternates Mallory Maedke, Nicole Kyoung-Mi Lambert, Courtney Mack, and Keirsten Hodgens also left the production.
Six, created by Tony winners Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, follows the six wives of King Henry VIII of England in a historical remix that turns the Tudor royals into pop queens. Marlow and Moss won the 2022 Tony Award for Best Original Score, and the show's costume designer Gabriella Slade took home the award for Best Costume Design.
Six is co-directed by Moss and Jamie Armitage. The production features set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabrielle Slade, lighting design by Tim Deiling, and sound design by Paul Gatehouse. Kenny Wax, Wendy and Andy Barnes, George Stiles, and Kevin McCollum serve as its producers on Broadway.
