“The six wives of Henry VIII” are the focus of Women’s History Month.

It released on Broadway last year and has been blown up on social media and on stage.

So we headed to the nation’s capital for a behind-the-scenes look at the National Theatre, where it’s currently playing and where the Tony Award-winning costumes are on display in all their glory.

The show is a cross between a Broadway musical and a pop concert, with each queen taking the stage with a solo singing HER story, elevating the wives to be more than the powerful man they married and the saying, they became known for – divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.
