Following a second successful run at The Other Palace, the British musical will transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre from the 27th October.
The 1980’s inspired musical featuring book music and lyrics by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, will transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre for a limited run from the 27th October until the 5th January 2019.
Talking about the news, producer Warwick Davis said: “We are thrilled to present Eugenius! in the West End – what an incredible, epic journey we have been on. At the beginning of 2018, Eugenius! had a buzz-filled, triumphant 6-week premiere at The Other Palace. The reaction was so incredible that we were invited back for another season. We tweaked, tickled, tightened and super-charged it, adding a new song and created Super Fan Sundays, giving our wonderful fans the opportunity to meet and quiz the cast and creative team. With many fans – or, rather, Eugenies – seeing it multiple times, their love for the show, the characters and earworm songs created a wonderful online community and the social media reaction has completely blown us all away. That buzz and army of supporters is now propelling us to the heart of the West End and we look forward to seeing audiences on their feet at every performance, punching the air and singing in unison, ‘Go Eugenius!’.”
Eugene is a teenage boy and briliant comic book artist whose dreams of a distant world of heroes and villains lead him to creating his very own superhero movie in Hollywood. Joined on his amazing adventures by best friends Janey and Feris, our intrepid hero reaches for the stars, finds the superhero within, saves the world from earthbound villains – and those from distant galaxies – and along the way, falls in love! With a hilarious script and dynamite original songs that’ll be stuck in your head for weeks, this shot of musical adrenaline is like nothing you’ve seen or heard before!
The musical has been nominated for eight Off West End Awards including Best Musical, Best Male Performance in a Musical, Best Female Performance in a Musical, Lighting Design, Sound Design and Video Design.
Eugenius! The Musical is directed by Ian Talbot and features choreography by Aaron Renfree, lighting design by Andrew Ellis, sound design by Dan Samson and set and costume design by Hannah Wolfe. It is produced by Warwick Davis, Kevin Wood and George Wood.
