LIVE THEATER IS BACK!!!!!! A few hours ago, the curtain just went down on the Olivier Award winning GIRL POWER musical SIX as they officially made their return to London's West End. The production debuted in its brand new temporary home at the Lyric Theatre where it will run through April 18th, 2021.
Already footage has been up recorded by fans (thanks to super permission from the QUEENS themselves) of that history making comeback curtain call featuring it's notable MEGASIX!!! As we can see from the video, Theatergoers are expresses their happiness, emotions, and having smiles again (even with a face mask on) to experience the magic of a live performance happening again.
BEFORE YOU WATCH THE VIDEO: Get those tissues out!!!!
In case anyone may not know, THE MEGASIX is what caused SIX to go viral around the world. It's performed during the curtain call as a finale medley reprise of each of the EX-WIVES big song in the show.
The London Queens on stage consist of….
Jarneia Richard – Noel as "Catherine of Aragon",
Courtney Bowman as "Anne Boleyn,
Natalie May Paris as "Jane Seymour",
Alexia McIntosh as "Anna of Cleves",
Sophie Issacs as "Katherine Howard",
Danielle Steers as "Catherine of Paar",
With SIX returning to the West End, there will be ongoing safety precautions since we're still coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone who works in the Theater (The Queens themselves, their LADIES IN WAITING, the crew, ushers, etc) and their fellow Theatergoers be going through constant temperature checks & COVID testing. Every Theater will be stalling more Hand Sanitizers everywhere. Most important, everyone will STILL be required to social distant and audience members will have to wear their face masks for the entire show. Both Theaters will have a limited 50% capacity of people allowed inside. Both shows itself will also be social distanced with updated staging. In addition before and after every performance, all the Theaters will undergo extended constant deep-cleanings.
In addition, it was just revealed on the show's social media that sadly due to this ongoing time and safety precautions, THE QUEENS will sadly not be stage dooring after performances. We know its the greatest feeling in the world to meet incredible talents you idolize. However, safety comes first. Of course, we just want to take a moment to remind all Theatergoers (who sadly won't be able to stage door at this time) NO RANTING PLEASE!!!! All of this is for everyone's safety from this horrible coronavirus. No one deserves to get sick at this time.
However, there are ways to still connected with the Queens themselves. You can follow them on social media, if anyone of them is teaching (and you're a performer), go take a master class with them, and even some of them have been doing virtual greetings & hang outs (depending on what they're doing).
Following SIX's engagement at the Lyric Theatre, the London company will return to its normal and usual longtime home at the Arts Theatre starting April 20th, 2021. Along with the West End company, the UK/Ireland tour is expecting to resume its run later this month.
Also for the New York company and upcoming return sit-down company in Chicago of SIX, they are also in the works to reopen somewhere in 2021.
WELCOME HOME QUEENS!!!
