Two West End alums will be crowned—at least for a little bit—in the London staging of the pop concert-meets-history lesson Six. Joining the musical beginning October 15 will be Courtney Bowman as Anne Boleyn and Danielle Steers as Catherine Parr. They take over for Millie O'Connell and Maiya Quansah Breed, respectively.
Bowman can currently be seen as Fatimah in the West End's Everybody's Talking About Jamie; her additional credits include The Wind in the Willows. Steers recently took on the role of Carmen in the Donmar Warehouse presentation of Sweet Charity; she previously appeared in Bat Out of Hell, Beautiful, and Legally Blonde.
Additionally, Collette Guitart (Bat Out of Hell) and Shekinah Macfarlane (American Idiot) will join as Dance Captain/Understudy and the Alternate Catherine of Aragon/Anna of Cleves for a four-month period beginning in July.
The current company at the Arts Theatre also includes Jarneia Richard-Noel as Catherine of Aragon, Natalie Paris as Jane Seymour, Alexia McIntosh as Anna of Cleves, and Aimie Atkinson as Katherine Howard.
The Olivier-nominated musical, by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, recently extended its booking period at the Arts Theatre and is now scheduled to play the venue through July 5, 2020. Following a recent U.S. premiere in Chicago, the musical is next slated to play the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A U.K. tour is also on deck.
