The 21st century has become another important century for inventions and discoveries. We are only in the 2nd decade of this century currently but we have already witnessed many big innovations that have drastically changed our way of living. Bluetooth technology, broadband internet, artificial heart, genetic engineering, virtual reality, 3D printing are some to name a few. These inventions are changing the way we live, do our things and communicate with the others. Even though some of these developments are in the early stage of innovation, they have a more sophisticated and promising future. Social media is one of the most important aspects that has affected each person in this modern time.

According to Heidi Cohen, Social Media are the platforms that enable the interactive web by engaging users to participate in, comment on and create content as means of communicating with their social graph, other users and the public. The power of social media has changed most of the things in our daily life. Social media has revolutionized and completely changed the way we send and receive information. It is more interactive, can be done in realtime and uses a wide number of media like text, audio, video, pictures, graphics and more. With these sites, sending and receiving messages offline and in realtime, audio and video chatting, sharing pictures, video and text, going “Live” to many audiences, meeting old friends and making new has revolutionized our way of establishing connections with others.

There are also the negative sides of the innovation of social media and their usage. Increase in cyber-crime, invasion of privacy, security threats etc. is some of the issues associated with social networks. But at the same time social networks are working themselves to cope with the increasing problems that arise with the improper use of it. With more and more sophistication and versatility of use, social media have undoubtedly proved to be a boon to connectivity and social interaction between people in this age of communication and information technology.

Six the Musical tells the stories of King Henry VIII's six wives through a collection of pop songs as they compare lives to see who suffered the most and who should therefore lead their girl group. The songs are catchy, fun, and exciting, and they are genuinely great pop tunes. The singing performances from the Australian actresses were amazing, and all of them were technically very skilled.

It originated as a college student's concept album and it is clear even in performance that it is not designed to exist as anything more than that. The dialogue is clumsy and tonally confused. It gives the audience proverbial whiplash by sounding like a Hi-5 concert one moment to hammy, beginner improv-style dialogue the next, before snapping to blunt, and pretty overt, British jokes about sex and adultery.

Six tries to emulate Hamilton's success by using modern musical elements and basing the story on a 'woke' and empowering retelling of history. But, as a revision on Henry VIII's wives, it just regurgitates a bunch of facts that the audience already knows and sets it to the song. In performance most of the characters are portrayed as strong, independent women, and they pull it off well by anchoring their music in modern-day pop feminists. But the squabbles between the wives play into the stereotype that women are catty and bitch about each other behind their backs. The entire musical is steeped in the idea that these women are only notable because of their relationship with King Henry VIII. Only in the last song of the show do the women finally reject Henry VIII and come to support and appreciate each other. Six didn't have to be like that. It could have been about the women supporting each other from the start.

And that is my other problem with Six. It tries to sell itself as a musical when it really isn’t. Most of the actresses cannot act or dance, they can only sing, and the choreography they are working with is very static compared to the likes of West Side Story, Moulin Rouge or most other musicals. At the same time, the set and lighting design are barely used and don't add much to their performances.
