In the Theater about 95% of the time, no one is aloud to take photographs and videos of any live performance. However, there are some shows out there that do give you permission to pull out those electronics during a performance…. majority of the time, it happens during the curtain call.
One of those show that gives you super permission to take photos and videos during the show is the Olivier nominated and Broadway bound GIRL POWER smash hit SIX. However, it only happens during the show's finale at the curtain call. Once The Queens finish taking their bows, one of them gives the green light telling the audience that they can take as many photos and videos of them onstage as they perform THE MEGASIX (the mashup of all the songs performed in the show). The idea was because of the show is set-up as if you're at a pop concert. Majority of all the performances have been photographed, video recorded, and posted on social media making SIX go even more viral.
Get a look of the Chicago company in action during their first preview (a.k.a THE FIRST NORTH AMERICAN PERFORMANCE) performing the MEGASIX taken from an audience member's video camera phone.
SIX is gearing up for its highly anticipated Broadway debut at the beginning of 2020. The Queen's will be coming to rule the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Previews are set to begin February 13th, 2020 and Opening Night scheduled for March 12th, 2020.
