Overview

Following a hugely successful debut concert performance at the London Palladium in 2016, cult musical Eugenius! returns to play a limited season at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace. Produced by Harry Potter and Willow star Warwick Davis, alongside Kevin Wood, the teenage love story receives its first full-scale production.

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, starring David Bedella, Marcus Brigstocke, Warwick Davis, Amy Lennox and Summer Strallen. Brian Blessed is set to voice some of the show, which features an original 80’s-inspired score, including tunes such as “Comic Book Kind of Love” and “Go Eugenius”.

Olivier Award-nominated Ian Talbot directs, after previously working as the Artistic Director of Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre for 20 years. Credits include Annie Get Your Gun, Lend Me a Tenor and Million Dollar Quartet. Further creative team includes choreography by Aaron Renfree, design by Hannah Wolfe, sound design by Gareth Owen and lighting design by Andrew Ellis, with musical direction by Darren Lord.

Boasting a scintillating script that is guaranteed to have audiences in laughter and tears, musical phenomenon Eugenius! plays at The Other Palace from 31 January to 3 March 2018, with previews beginning 22 January 2018.

I found Eugenius! really enjoyable. The 80s style score was really catchy and the cast is incredibly talented. However, the story is a bit of a mess, with a lack of justification (and character motivation) for a lot of the things that happen. The book and lyrics were quite poor and I felt it relied a little too heavily on character stereotypes (bitchy gay guy, pervy nerd, dumb hot actress etc) without challenging them at all. BUT DAMN those songs are catchy! And the audience get really into it so it's hard not to get swept up and have a really good time.

I found this production quite enjoyable but not as much as those around me. I think it's definitely going to acquire a cult following of youngsters and those who are into Star Wars! Basically, if you like anything 80's, Star Wars, 80's movies and comic books then you will love this production. I did find the songs very good actually and sung with great acclaim. The only thing was the storyline was a bit flimsy and I found the whole scenario of the high school romance, jocks vs nerds being done a million times before. I spied Warwick Davis (the producer of this show) in the audience and he really seemed to be enjoying himself. There was a big standing ovation at the end but I'm afraid I wasn't one of those who gave it one! It's definitely a 'marmite' musical!

The story itself is very light-hearted, with great 80s references that many of that era can relate to, such as many classic 80s films (Sci-fi, Horror), costumes, and technology (how big were the mobile phones!) all incorporated into this one musical. Its a feel good show, that leave you laughing and smiling from ear to ear when you leave the auditorium from all the silliness – it is not one to be taken too seriously! When the show comes to an end it is clear that the audience had the best evening, with a highly deserved standing ovation the finale felt like a 80s rock concert with us dancing, and fist pumping the air throughout. It really does get you going, that makes you want to return again and again to escape the reality of outside. Everyone loves it, it highly deserves a theatre of its own to share to more of the public, one can only hope this will be the case.

What a brilliant show! Could not be happier that Warwick Davies chose to produce it after the London Palladium, as it deserves to be seen by wider audiences. Ben Adams' score is simply brilliant, incredibly catchy tunes that you actually remember - a rarity for new British musicals. It's a parody-style comedy of comic books/geeks, but it's genuinely hilarious and thoroughly engaging. Loved every second and definitely thinking of returning! A hugely enjoyable evening.

A fun show, not my favourite by a long way though. It's a very heartfelt love letter to the 1980s - of which I was not around for - and the sci-fi of the decade - again, I was a bit clueless going in. It was still enjoyable and a good evening out. A number of the songs were super catchy (I've been humming them in my head all week), others very forgettable. Worth a watch, but nowhere near as good as Bananaman The Musical (in my opinion).

I can't think of a show more worthy of a standing ovation. The cast was phenomenal, the songs were all extremely catchy, the set design was relatively simple but it worked so well. The tag line is absolutely right - you already need to see it again.

The show was very good, with great singing from the leads and made more enjoyable for me by lots of references to old films (although it wouldn't detract from your enjoyment if you didn't know all of them). The staging & choreography was great - the highlight for me was the Fosse number.

Fantastic 80's nostalgic, cheesy comedy! The script is well written and the cast were amazing (especially Ferris). Brilliant songs, hilarious jokes and great references to 80's pop culture. A must see!
