From Tudor Queens to Pop Icons, the SIX wives of Henry VIII take the microphone to remix five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a Euphoric Celebration of 21st century girl power! This new original musical is the global sensation that everyone is losing their head over!

SIX won 23 awards in the 2021/2022 Broadway season, including the Tony Award for Best Original Score (Music and Lyrics) and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical.

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 SIX: Live On Opening Night Broadway album debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard cast album charts and surpassed 6 million streams in its first month.

It was a pleasure to sit down with Aryn Bohannon, who understudies for 3 main roles Jane Seymour, Katherine Howard, and Anne Boleyn for this exclusive Hotspots interview:

At what age did you begin performing?

I started when I was 12 years old. I always wanted to be a part of musical theater, but I was a gymnast and my mom wanted me to stay a gymnast. Luckily, I got injured and couldn’t do gymnastics, so I got to pursue musical theater. 

What was your first professional gig and how much did you get paid?

This is my first professional gig. 

When did you know performing would be your career?

I think I always knew. As soon as I started, I loved it so much I knew I couldn’t do anything else. 

How excited are you that Six is your first National tour?

So excited, it’s a dream come true. I am a huge fan of the show and when I got the call I was in it; it did not feel real. 

You understudy for 3 of the queens, do you have a favorite?

I think my favorite is Ann Bolin as she is so fun and punky the whole time. I was a fan of Avril Lavigne as a kid and that is kind of what she embodies.

Other than these roles, what has been your favorite role so far?

I got to play Heather Chandelier in Heathers and thankfully I am not a mean person, but playing mean is fun. 

What’s your fantasy role (a role you haven’t played but want to)?

There a lot, now the one I am mostly dreaming about is Eurydice in Hadestown.

How well do you and your castmates get along? 

Oh my gosh, so well. They are pretty much my family at this point. We have seen each other 24/7 for like a year and a half now. The fact that we spend time together outside of work says a lot. 

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Silly, happy, and ambitious. 

What do you do for fun?

I like to play video games and I love arcades. I also love cinema. 

What should our readers expect from this touring company of, “Six”? 

I think this musical is going to be a favorite all around no matter what background you come from. The songs are like the songs you hear on the radio, and the story is face paced so it’s easy to follow. It’s like a giant concert so it’s a lot of fun.
