Tony Awards 2022: British musical Six picks up eight nominations for Broadway show

British musical Six has picked up eight nominations in the 2022 Tony Awards.

Lucy Moss and Toby Marlow’s show, which re-imagines the wives of Henry VIII as a girl group performing live in concert, was first performed by the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017.

It went on to open in the West End in 2019 and on Broadway in October 2021, having been in previews when Broadway shut down due to the pandemic the previous March.

Other highly nominated shows include The Lehman Trilogy, which debuted at the National Theatre in 2018, and Marianne Elliott’s Company, also originally performed in London.

This year’s Tony Awards will take place on 12 June and will be hosted by Oscar winner Ariana DeBose.
