The Six Wives of Henry VIII: What The Musical Left Out

March 28 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

$40 – $50

The American public has had a longstanding fascination with England’s Tudor dynasty. Most recently, the Tony-award-winning smash musical, “Six,” about the women caught up in the marital misadventures of England’s most notorious monarch, Henry VIII, has tapped fully into that obsession with sold-out performances across the country, including in South Florida, where it is running at the Kravis from March 26th through the 31st! While each wife reveals a little about herself in the musical through a single song, much about their lives is left untold. This lecture, with PowerPoint, will go behind the “divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived” mantra and explore the details of their personal lives and how each impacted history in her own right. Get to know these extraordinary women as flesh-and-blood human beings rather than lurid caricatures by joining us after you attend the performance at the Kravis or just come to learn more about Catherine, Anne, Jane, Anne, Catherine, and Catherine!
