GREAT PERFORMANCE BUT IS IT WORTH IT?

Saw the tour in Detroit and loved the performances. The women excelled in embracing the music styles, choreography, and audience engagement. It was a great concert. Now for why I don't give it five stars. 1. Sound. At times the music overrode the lyrics and the dialogue was too fast to clearly understand. Glad I listened to the music beforehand or I would have missed a lot of the humor. 2. Plot. Perhaps to be expected when factual information is lacking, there is little plot and virtually no depth. For a "me, too" moment extraordinaire, it rarely transcends "poor me." The clever lyrics render some of the women as vapid sex objects to be a king's toy - the very thing the women say they do not want to be remembered as. 3. Price. It was an 80-minute concert with no props, no set or costume changes, 11 actors (including understudies), and 4 musicians. Top seats were $200, so even the cheap seats not very cheap. Despite great performances, that's expensive for a short concert.

HEARING DAMAGE

I believe I would have enjoyed the experience of SIX if the volume was not so deafening. I already had hearing loss prior to the show, and maybe more since, and if I found it almost painful then I am sure others did too. I am glad I saw the show, but I would not see it again.

NO PLOT

The "first" act seem to build to a conclusion and a point to make, but then it just ended! I've never been to such a short musical, only 80 minutes. Kind of felt like "who did we bother to go through the hassle of getting here?" Lines were rushed and hard to understand. If you want to go see a short rock concert, this is your show.

OKAY?

The performers did not do the songs justice, the set was quite literally a last thought and the costuming was recycled. Zero originalality and no effort to promote a dope ass concept. They definitely catered to their bland rice white Audience.

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING ?

A few of the girls were good( the one who divorced:lived in the house - v good) but entire show was ruined by Ann Boleyn character . High pitched Disney -esque dippy screetching… maybe the girl can sing in real life and they made her act like this so shame on director . It was un watchable . It could’ve been great with different script and songs

GIRLY CONCERT WITH A WEAK PLOT

I hate to criticize any musical. I would add that it seemed as though the audience loved it. ?! Alas, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The set and costumes were excellent. The singers were excellent and their dancing was excellent. The lighting was excellent. There was virtually no story and what story there was was clouded by the singing style or bad accustics but I think bad writing. I was bewildered trying to figure out what the plot was--apparently, it was a sortof contest between the various wives and the audience was part of it?? Okay--weak story line, no wondering what's next. Just one song following another. I liked 3 of the ? 15 songs. I thought the music was mostly repetitive with overpowering bass--a bit of the louder is better theme. The talent was there but wasted on a brutal thump, thump, thump while the "wives" did their evocative best to engage the audience with grinding hips and quivering thighs. I was happy when it ended. Maybe I'm too old? It seemed as though the majority of the audience really enjoyed the show.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

I love Broadway musicals normally. This touring company lacked experience and it showed in how songs presented. They were too loud, often words not understood, and too often rushed. Several girls seemed miscast. Jane Seymour was young girl and this cast member seemed way too old. Anne B often screechy. Dancing okay musicians okay. Some costumes okay and others really bad Maybe it was better on Broadway

What we thought

uplifting SISTERLY Sassiness

The transformation of the wives into a modern-day girl pop group, vying for X factor type glory...is a brilliant adaptation

The Spice Girls might have reunited but they've got a run for their money in the unexpected form of Henry VIII's wives. But unlike their static portraits (and positions in history), these girls can sing and dance and put on a dazzling performance.
