Listen up, Let me tell you a story!
SIX is a new British musical currently playing at the Arts Theatre. Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss this studio cast recording gives you the perfect insight into the “sassy” queens of King Henry VIII. Each queen has her own pop music style so there is truly a song on this album for everybody.
Welcome to the Rock!
Written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, this Olivier Award-winning one-act musical is currently playing at London’s Pheonix Theatre.

This is a must-listen soundtrack.
