Super-joyous superhero musical Eugenius! will return to The Other Palace for a second limited run this Autumn.
Following its triumphant first run at the Victoria venue earlier this year, the original British musical will be playing a further month between 1 September and 7 October. Casting is to be announced.
Written by Ben Adams (of A1 fame) and Chris Wilkins, Eugenius! tells 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.
But when a being from a distant galaxy threatens the world, it’s up to our geeky genius to discover the true meaning of growing up, fall in love, and find his superhero within.
Eugenius! will continue to play all of the songs the public fell in love with the first time around, including the incredibly catchy number Go Eugenius!, as well as Comic Book Kind Of Love, Don’t Shoot For The Stars, Future Is Bright and Hollywood. The award-winning Ian Talbot will direct.
Producer Warwick Davis said, “The clamouring for Eugenius! to return has been so great, it can be heard in another galaxy! We have listened and brought it back.
“If you missed it last time, this is your chance to see what the buzz is all about. And for our Super Fans out there, we’ll be adding dedicated Sunday performances – exclusively for you! The show returns with our amazing creative team and of course the 80s inspired soundtrack which had audiences on their feet every evening.”
