The show's New York home is the 1000-seat Brooks Atkinson Theatre, which was previously the home of Waitress on Broadway. You can buy tickets for the Broadway show here.
Six is written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, with co-direction by Moss and Jamie Armitage. Choreography is by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabriella Slade, lighting design by Tim Deiling, sound design by Paul Gatehouse, musical supervision by Joe Beighton and orchestrations by Tom Curran.
Marlow and Moss said: "We are UNBELIEVABLY excited about Six coming to Broadway, like actually what is going on! We are so grateful that we get to share our show with an even wider audience, especially somewhere as iconic as the home of musical theatre – BROADWAY BABY!! The whole team across the pond are ridiculously amazing, and we can't wait to share the show with you – NYC, thanks for having us!!!"
The production has recently unveiled a new sing-along cast album, and a book full of sheet music. It continues to run at the Arts Theatre in the West End and is also on a UK tour, currently in Cheltenham before travelling to Edinburgh, Aylesbury, Bath, Nottingham, Bromley, Southend, Sheffield, Hull, Canterbury, Coventry, Leicester, Newcastle, Southampton and Birmingham.
