Filipino Canadian actor Andrea Macasaet is playing the role of Anne Boleyn, King Henry VIII’s second wife, in the Broadway production of “SIX,” a musical about the wives of one of England’s most notorious monarchs.

Macasaet auditioned in Toronto three years ago and joined the production as Anne Boleyn when the show opened in 2019, completing runs in Chicago, Boston, St. Paul and Edmonton. She didn’t realize it was going to take her to her debut on Broadway.
