Following the withdrawal of a key investor, new superhero musical Eugenius! has been forced to cancel its planned West End transfer, the show has announced.

Having recently revealed plans for a transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre at the end of this month, the show has revealed that a key investor has pulled out at the last minute, due to the wider economic conditions.

Producer Kevin Wood said of the news, “The past few days has been spent frantically trying to replace them but time has run out.

“In the New Year we will take stock and come again. We have spent too much time and money on this project to just let it die.”

Eugenius! will end its second critically acclaimed run at The Other Palace – extended due to public demand – on Sunday 21 October. You can still purchase tickets for this run here.

Written by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, Eugenius! is a teenage love story at heart, telling the story of Eugene, 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.

Ticket holders for the cancelled run should contact their point of sale.
