The smash Broadway hit, “SIX”, is coming to the Providence Performing Arts Center for an unprecedented two weeks, April 11-23.
“From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the SIX wives of Henry VIII take the mic to remix 500 years of historical heartbreak into an exuberant celebration of 21st century girl power!” says the advance PR on one of the hottest shows on Broadway.
“Audiences across the country are getting a chance to share this great musical while it is still playing to record crowds on Broadway,” said Terica Marie, who plays the Queen of Sheba, the fourth of Henry’s wives. “We have bookings into 2024.
“When Henry first meets Anna, he disguises himself, imagining some sort of romantic reaction. He kisses her and she turns away coldly from the hideous stranger”
The rest is history.
Terica called in from Philadelphia, where the musical is playing for three weeks before moving on to Providence.
The singer,songwriter and actress graduated from Ball State University where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts, starring in many college and dinner theatre productions before landing a major role in “SIX”.
When she’s at home, she is usually in the studio recording her songs.
“Actors are like athletes,” Terica said, “except that their sport doesn’t have a break. We must stay in shape year-round. I do yoga every morning, go to the gym and stay in shape.
“This is my first time travelling from city to city, and I find it very exciting,” she said.
“I love meeting new people, exploring new cities and different cuisines,” the Kentucky native who now lives in Indiana said, “especially the seafood.”
