While Henry the 8th fights for his life, his daughter Mary Tudor has a battle of her own: she wants to claim his soon-to-be-empty throne. A supernatural twist on the classic Tudor Court tale, Half-Dozen Musical tells the story of the night Henry VIII descended into madness as he is visited by the ghost of each of his wives. They take us on a musical journey through their obituaries with laughter, tears, and original live music and dance. This is a story about the blood-tainted path to power and the strength of a woman scorned.
