The Wives of Henry VIII Sing Their Heads Off

Stage Directions

SIX the Musical, a modern re-telling of the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII, got its start at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017, and has since been popular with an indefinite run at the Arts Theatre in London’s West End. DPA’s d:facto 4018V Vocal Microphone plays a starring role in the staging of SIX the Musical - and not just because it conveys the crystal clear audio that sound designer Paul Gatehouse was looking for. Equally important is the look of the microphone and the fact that it is handheld, which truly conveys the concert-like atmosphere that this hugely popular show aims to replicate.
