The London theatre will present a concert performance of the brand new British musical starring Warwick Davis in June.
Taking place at the London Palladium on the 29th June, the concert premiere of the new musical is produced by as well as starring Warwick Davis.
Joining him in the show will be a host of musical theatre stars including: double Olivier Award-winner David Bedella (In The Heights, Jerry Springer, The Opera, The Rocky Horror Show), Amy Lennox (Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde), Samuel Holmes (Mrs Henderson Presents, Spamalot) and Summer Strallen(Sound of Music, Love Never Dies). Comedian Marcus Brigstocke will join the cast as the Narrator and Brian Blessed will provide a guest voiceover.
Well, it’s a classic love story between two kids – Eugene and Janey. She is mad on him, but he always has his head inside a comic book – so much so that he actually writes his own comic about a superhero. Against the odds, Eugene’s creations take him to Hollywood and he becomes the unlikely hero of his own intergalactic battle! Did we mention it’s set in the classic decade –the 80s?
The book, music and lyrics have been written by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, with this concert production being directed by Ian Talbot and Olivier Award nominee Michael Jibson.
Producer Warwick Davis said, “We are really excited to be bringing a brand new, original production to the London stage. The performance on 29 June will give the audience a chance to experience this new ‘80s-inspired musical before it is staged in the West End as a full production next year. We have a hugely talented cast and production team, and the music is just phenomenal. We look forward to sharing our work with the first, lucky audience at the London Palladium this June.”
