Electrifying musical phenomenon SIX by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss will become the first West End musical to resume performances across the U.K. with Utilita Live From The Drive-In.
Producers Kenny Wax, Wendy & Andy Barnes and George Stiles have announced that SIX will play at open air drive-in concert venues in London, Birmingham, Bolton, Bristol, Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Lincoln, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Newmarket and Teesside as part of Live Nation Entertainment’s Utilita Live From The Drive-In summer season.
SIX will perform an 8-show week in each venue with customers arriving by car but able to step outside, picnic and party while they watch the festival-style full-length live stage show from their own dedicated area next to their vehicle. 300 vehicles can attend each show with a maximum of seven people allowed in each car.
The producers have announced they will be sending the Arts Theatre cast and the UK Tour casts on tour subject to the Queens own availability, but can’t guarantee any
individual cast members at specific performances.
Designed to comply with all official guidelines, Utilita Live From The Drive-In will deliver the UK’s premier drive-in experience, boasting concert quality sound from a live stage with a full state of the art sound system, lighting rig and high definition LED screens, creating an arena or stadium concert feel in a safe Drive-In setting adhering to the Government’s current social distancing rules to protect fans, artists, crews and staff at all times.
Producer Kenny Wax said:
“We are delighted that SIX will spearhead the reopening of one of London and the UK’s most popular shows. With the industry in crisis, theatres struggling and some even going out of business, this drive-in event offers hope for the future and equally importantly, jobs for about 50 of our company including cast, musicians, stage managers, technicians and freelancers. We are using both our West End and UK touring casts, rehearsing and touring them in a bubble and having them work in teams of 6 (fortunate for us) as per the government guidance.”
From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic in SIX to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red.
