It has been announced that following a successful concert performance last year, Eugenius the Musical will have a full scale production at The Other Palace from the 22nd January.
Written by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, Eugenius! is a teenage love story set againsta a backdrop of comic books and superheroes.
Eugene is a teenage boy whose nightly dreams of a distant world of heroes and villains may just be the ticket to him creating his very own comic book movie in Hollywood. Joined by his best friends Janey and Feris, our comic writing genius must discover the true meaning of growing up, finding the superhero within, saving the world from both earthbound villains and possibly those from distant galaxies, and along the way, falling in love.
This unique musical is produced by Harry Potter star Warwick Davis, Kevin Wood and George Wood and is directed by Ian Talbot.
Talking about the news Warwick Davis said: “We are thrilled to be bringing an original British musical to The Other Palace. After a tremendous concert performance at the London Palladium last summer we can’t wait to see the fully staged production. Ben and Chris have written this incredible 80’s inspired score and includes the songs ‘Go Eugenius’ and ‘Comic Book Kind of Love’, which received popular acclaim last year.”
While casting for the production has yet to be announced, the creative team behind the new musical includes Aaron Renfree who will choreograph, sound design by Gareth Owen, lighting by Andrew Ellis, musical supervision by Stuart Morley and musical direction by Darren Lord. Set and costume design will be by Hannah Wolfe and the show’s design features specially commissioned comic book artwork by Marvel artist, Simon Williams (Transformers, Spider Man, Marvel Heroes, The lncredible Hulk).
Eugenius! The musical will play at The Other Palace from the 22nd January until the 3rd March 2018. Check out what Love London Love Culture thought of the concert performance last year here.
