Back to the theatre I go! This time to a production of SIX, a concert featuring the six wives of Henry IIIV all competing for the title of unluckiest queen. It was flashy and fun, the women on stage screlting (screaming + belting) their hearts out in incredible costumes, with the finale ending with confetti falling from the sky. It was glorious: the Spice Girls take on history I never knew I needed. This kind of historical adaptation is particularly creative because of the ways it reclaims history and allows figures from the past to retell their stories in ways that empower them.
A teen musical about a group of young female friends working on a school project about historical women. They each go on a journey as they finish their final year of high school, connecting to their assigned heroine and through working on their assignment. Each of them has a song about their chosen woman, and how the story they're studying connects to their own lives and their journey into womanhood.
