I’m not afraid to say that I am a nerd.
I love learning, and I loved school. In fact, I miss it a bit.
When I’m able to indulge my ‘nerdy’ side in everyday life, I go wild for it. I like films and books that I can analyse, I love a museum trip, and I (like most of us) love discovering new things while getting lost on Wikipedia on a lunch break.
So when I was invited along to watch the hit musical Six at Nuffield Southampton Theatres, I knew it would be right up my street.
A musical that masquerades as a pop concert, telling the stories of each of Henry VIII’s six wives? I am THERE.
This is an incredible, empowering and brilliant production that lets six of the most famous, but voiceless, women in British history, tell their tales.
I haven’t stopped listening to the soundtrack since.
I’ve reviewed the whole show on Broadway World UK; but here’s a snippet to get you started:
“You can keep your Spice Girls reunion; this is the original female supergroup. Six is girl power in ruffs and bustles; these queens are reclaiming their names and embellishing them in glitter. Prepare to be royally entertained.”

I was invited to review this performance for Broadway World UK, but as always all views are honest and completely my own.
