Eugenius! is the hilarious musical comedy that follows a comic-writing teenage boy who dreams of superheroes and villains. Teaming up with his best friends Janey and Feris, Eugene may be able to create his own Hollywood comic book movie. But first, he must discover the true meaning of growing up, by finding the superhero within, saving the world from evil and falling in love on the way!
With a book, music and lyrics by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, Eugenius! received a concert performance in 2016, with stars including David Bedella, Marcus Brigstocke, Amy Lennox and Summer Strallen. Featuring an original 80’s-inspired score, toe-tapping tunes include “Happy Endings Don’t Exist”, “Comic Book Kind of Love”, “Go Eugenius” and more.
