Lockdown may be easing, yet the theatres are not yet open, but in the spirit of the arts and our industry, companies are still finding new and creative ways to get put on a good show.
SIX is the electrifying musical phenomenon that everyone has lost their head over. You've seen them in theatres across the world, streamed their album countless times and now you can join the rest of the Queendom for a party and picnic on a Utilita Live From The Drive-In arena stage!
The full musical version proclaimed as "pure entertainment" by the New York Times is back with the West End and UK tour casts travelling to several venues up and down the country.
From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st-century girl power. This intoxicating Tudor take by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss is a histo-remixed pop-concert musical you won't forget.
Named the Musical Of The Decade by WhatsOnStage, SIX is the ultimate show to get people back on their feet and enjoying live theatre at a time when indoor theatres are not permitted to open.
The Queens are back, so grab your crowns and your picnic blankets and get down like it's 1533.
