The applause and cheers of the 1,069+ people in the audience that night can all be heard on this historical collection. As we listen, sing, and dance along to the gorgeous voices of the original Broadway cast, we are transported back to that magical night when we finally got to say ‘Happy Opening!’”


Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss said “We wanted to capture that buzz, that electric atmosphere that can only be created by a group of pop royalty stepping out onstage in front of an audience of squealing fans. So - welcome to the show. :)"

The female cast is backed by an all-female band, “The Ladies in Waiting.” The New York Times says SIX “Totally rules!” (Critic’s Pick) and The Washington Post hails SIX as “Exactly the kind of energizing, inspirational illumination this town aches for! The Broadway season just got supercharged!”
