It's time for another visit with Midday theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins us each week with her reviews of the mid-Atlantic regional stage.

Today, she tells us about the new touring company production of Sixnow in an eight-performance run at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatrein which the six wives of Henry VIII take the stage to spin their infamous 500-year-old heartbreaks into an exuberant, 21st century "her-storical" musical.

Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, Six won 23 awards in the 2021-2022 Broadway season, including a Tony Award for Best Original Score (Music and Lyrics) and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical.

The touring production is co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, with music direction byJulia Schade.

Six continues at theHippodrome Theatrethrough Sunday, May 14.
