The musical ‘Six’ is heading to the Palazzo Theater on the Las Vegas Strip

“Six” settles where the “Jersey Boys” and “Baz” once fought.

The Tony Award-winning musical performs at the Palazzo Theater for seven (not six) weeks from March 21.

The show offers eight performances per week: 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday; and 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Sunday (tickets start at $69.99, plus fees, on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday at VenetianLasVegas.com, SixOnBroadway.com, or any Venetian box office).

“Six” is the hit Broadway musical that chronicles the saga of Henry VIII’s six wives. Creatives are creators Toby Marlow and Lucy Mousse, with co-producers Kenny Wax, Wendy and Andy Barnes, George Stiles and Kevin McCollum.

The cast is the North American touring cast Khaila Wilcoxon like Catherine of Aragon, storm lever like Anne Boleyn, Jasmine Forsberg like Jane Seymour, Olivia Donaldson like Anna of Cleves, Didi Romero like Katherine Howard, and Gabriela Carrillo as Catherine Parr. The cast of alternates is Kelsee Kimmel, Erin Ramirez, Cassie Silva and Kelly Denice Taylor.

The show unfolds with its talented sextet of singers and lively dialogue. Highlights include “Don’t Lose My Head”, “Ex Wives” and “Heart of Stone”. Recording the cast in the studio is an effective way to prepare for the show, actually. “Come down, you rascal, because I’m the queen of the castle”, excerpt from “Get Down (feat. Genesis Lynea).”

We attended the traveling show at the Smith Center in September. As reported at the time, the main character of Henry VIII is not even physically present. It does not matter. He is mentioned throughout, the singers swapping songs behind a live band. Everyone is on stage, all the time, in a vocally artistic cardio workout.

“Six” enters an artistically rich, if often commercially contested, showroom. This is the first paid show to play at the Palazzo Theater since Pat Caddick the wonderful “This is Christmas” was staged during the last holiday season. “Jersey Boys” opened the hall in 2008, for three years before moving to the Théâtre de Paris.

Over the years, by Bob Anderson “Frank: The man. music.” and Clint Holmes’ The shows “Between The Lines” played in the room. “Baz” was his final residency show, coming to an abrupt end in July 2018, though the show inspired a custom redesign of the theater.

The Venetian CEO Patrick Nichols says, “‘Six’ is a great addition to the complex’s rich history as home to long-running and beloved Broadway shows and reinforces our commitment to transforming the entertainment landscape in Las Vegas.” As the ladies of “Six” would agree, that’s a lofty goal.
