A little over one month into their reigns, new portraits have been released of SIX's newest queens. The Tudor pop musical stars Hailee Kaleem Wright, Leandra Ellis-Gaston, Bella Coppola, Nasia Thomas, Zoe Jensen, and Taylor Iman Jones as the Renaissance women who all married England's King Henry VIII in the Tudor pop musical.
The new cast took their first bows December 5, with Wright (Paradise Square) as Catherine of Aragon, Ellis-Gaston (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical) as Anne Boleyn, Coppola (Kinky Boots) as Jane Seymour, Thomas (Caroline, or Change) as Anna of Cleves, Jensen (Dear Evan Hansen) as Katherine Howard, and Jones (Head Over Heels) as Catherine Parr.
The new cast recently stopped by Playbill studios to play some trivia about the historic women they've taken on. In their group interview after the game, they shared stories from Ellis-Gaston's worst stage fear coming true, Coppola's memory of staring at all the iPhone lights during her Broadway debut solo, and how they've built a sisterhood advocating for each other backstage.

Alternates Marilyn Caserta, Kristina Leopold, and Aubrey Matalon also joined at the same time as the new principals with Ayla Ciccone-Burton and Holli' Conway continuing to serve.
Six was created by Tony winners Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss. Marlow and Moss won the 2022 Tony Award for Best Original Score, and the show's costume designer Gabriella Slade took home the award for Best Costume Design.
Moss and Jamie Armitage co-direct the production which features set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabrielle Slade, lighting design by Tim Deiling, and sound design by Paul Gatehouse. Kenny Wax, Wendy and Andy Barnes, George Stiles, and Kevin McCollum serve as its producers on Broadway.
