The wives of Henry VIII invited the Broadway newcomers to their stage to welcome them to the neighborhood
Harmony’s leading men received a warm — and royal — welcome to Broadway.
On Monday, the cast of the Tony Award-winning show SIX invited their new neighbors on West 47th Street, the six harmonists from the new musical Harmony, to their stage at the Lena Horne Theatre to celebrate their arrival.
The cast of the smash-hit musical about the six wives of Henry VIII — Hailee Kaleem Wright (Catherine of Aragon), Zoe Jensen (Katherine Howard), Taylor Iman Jones (Catherine Parr), and alternates Marilyn Caserta, Aubrey Matalon and Holli’ Conway — not only greeted the Broadway newcomers, but also gifted them with a very on-theme goodie bag.
Clad in their glittery costumes, the SIX cast gifted the harmonists, who began performances on Oct. 18 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, with Union Jack bags and a British-favorite beverage: gin.
“So, you all, welcome to 47th Street and on Broadway,” Wright told the group. “We just have a little token of our appreciation for you guys with our Hayman’s London Royal Gin.”
She added, “So invite us over to the Barrymore, okay?”
The Harmony sextet — Sean Bell (Bobby), Danny Kornfeld (Young Rabbi), Zal Owen (Harry), Eric Peters (Erich), Blake Roman (Chopin) and Steven Telsey (Lesh) — did not come to their own theater-warming party empty-handed.
“And from Harmony, we are so thankful and lucky to be opposite you on 47th Street,” Owen told the SIX cast. “As we are a Jewish-themed show, we have some traditional rugelach — a tasty treat.”
After snapping a few photos together as a group of twelve, the harmonists then headed back over to their own theater, gin in hand.
“Thank you SIX,” Owen said as the group left the theater. “Thank you queens!”

Harmony opened earlier this month after a sold-out, highly decorated downtown run.
The musical, which takes place in 1920s Germany, follows the true story of the Comedian Harmonists, “six remarkably talented young men form a singing group who become international sensations,” per an official synopsis. “They sell millions of records, star in major motion pictures, and play the biggest theaters around the world. By 1935, they were never heard from again.”
Along with the harmonists, Sierra Boggess (Mary), Julie Benko (Ruth) and Chip Zien (Rabbi) also star in the show.
Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, the original musical features an original score by Barry Manilow, with lyrics and book by Bruce Sussman.
In SIX, which officially opened on Broadway in October 2021, the “wives of Henry VIII take the microphone to remix five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a Euphoric Celebration of 21st century girl power,” according to an official synopsis.
