Toby Marlow (OA 2013), co-creator of historical comedy ‘Six: The Musical’, has won a prestigious Tony Award for best original score, alongside co-creator Lucy Moss.
The show, which retells the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII in the form of a pop concert, was created by Marlow and Moss while they were at Cambridge University together. Although winning best original score, ‘Six’ was nominated for eight Tony awards in total, including best new musical, best direction of a musical, best costume design of a musical, best lighting design of a musical, best sound design of a musical, best choreography and best orchestrations.
To receive such a prestigious award at this young age is an outstanding achievement by any standard and we continue to watch with interest to see what is next for Toby and Lucy as they continue to work together on future projects.
Abingdon Headmaster, Mike Windsor congratulates both Toby and Lucy on their achievement: “I would like to congratulate Toby and Lucy on their fantastic achievement. I went to see Six with my family and thought it was a brilliantly innovative and entertaining show. It certainly deserves its global success and I wish Toby and Lucy all the best with their future endeavours.”
