Review: The Reunion, featuring the original Queens of Six the Musical
Earlier this month, the original seven queens of Six reunited for a live concert in London, live-streamed all around the world thanks to Thespie. This reunion concert, very aptly titled The Reunion was a tribute to many female artists, with an empowering message for everyone: that real queens always fix each other's crowns.
They opened with Beyonce's "End of Time," followed with "Royals" by Lorde. Every single queen was absolutely stunning, and the choreography was fantastic. After the group numbers they followed with an individual number from each queen, starting with Millie O'Connell.
She sang Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl," beginning with a stripped down version that ended up going absolutely full out. Grace Mouat, who originally covered all six queens, sang Sara Bareilles' "Armor," a song that I was not previously familiar with, but she sang it so incredibly well.
Alexia McIntosh followed with "Heard it all Before" by Sunshine Anderson, a song that her voice is absolutely perfect for. Maiya Quansah-Breed continued with a beautiful rendition of "Superwoman" by Alicia Keys, which was absolutely spot on. And the room was filled with the power of Jarneia Richard-Noel's voice during her rendition of Beyonce's "Freedom."
Natalie Paris sang "Sorry Not Sorry" by Demi Lovato, a choice I would not have expected from her, but she did it incredibly well. Also an unexpected choice was Aimie Atkinson's rendition of "Fighter" by Christina Aguilera, which was absolutely wonderful. With the concert being one of the first live theatrical events in London since the shutdown, there was an incredibly special energy that radiated from the room.
The final two group numbers, "Queen" by Jessie J, and Little Mix's "Salute" were absolutely incredible. It's no surprise that this incredibly talented group of women were able to put together such an incredible concert. And I only have one request for them. Can we please get an album of it?
