After a hugely successful debut concert performance at the London Palladium in 2016, as well as an initial West End run in 2018, smash-hit cult musical Eugenius! returns to play another limited season at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace. Produced by Warwick Davis, Kevin Wood and George Wood, the teenage love story has received huge praise.

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.

Casting includes Rob Houchen as Eugene, Laura Baldwin as Janey, Daniel Buckley as Feris, Neil McDermott as Evil Lord Hector, Scott Paige as Theo, Alex Bourne as Lex, Simon Thomas as Tough Man and Emily Tierney as Super Hot Lady.

Olivier Award-nominated Ian Talbot directs, after previously working as the Artistic Director of Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre for 20 years. Further creative team includes choreographer Aaron Renfree, set and costume designer Hannah Wolfe, sound designer Gareth Owen and lighting designer Andrew Ellis, with musical direction by Darren Lord.

Boasting a super-hot script that is guaranteed to have audiences in fits of laughter, musical phenomenon Eugenius! plays at The Other Palace for another strictly limited season, from 1 September to 21 October 2018, with a press night on 5 September 2018.

This was the final show in this run of Eugenius! so there was extraordinarily long applause and lots of tears all round.
