Eugenius! transfers to the West End

Update 11 October: Please note that this run has now been cancelled.

Comic-book fever is still taking over the world and the latest superhero to sweep audiences off their feet is flying into the West End later this month. Due to phenomenal demand, Eugenius! is transferring to the Ambassadors Theatre for a limited 10-week run.

The upbeat, feel-good, 80s-inspired show will be concluding its second run at the Other Palace Theatre on 21 October before jumping over to its new West End home the week after.

Telling the story of Eugene – a high school student who spends all his spare time writing his comic book about Tough Man, a hero from a distant world. After being forced to enter a competition, Eugene has his story turned into a Hollywood movie. Best friends Janey and Feris join him as he reaches for the stars, finds the superhero within, saves the world from earthbound villains – and those from distant galaxies – and along the way, falls in love!

The hilarious show has been written by Ben Adams (of A1 fame) and Chris Wilkins and has some of the catchiest tunes you’ll ever hear in musical theatre.

Producer Warwick Davis, the legendary Star Wars and Harry Potter actor, said: “We are thrilled to present Eugenius! in the West End – what an incredible, epic journey we have been on. At the beginning of 2018, Eugenius! had a buzz-filled, triumphant six-week premiere at The Other Palace. The reaction was so incredible that we were invited back for another season… With many fans – or, rather, Eugenies – seeing it multiple times, their love for the show, the characters and earworm songs created a wonderful online community and the social media reaction has completely blown us all away. That buzz and army of supporters is now propelling us to the heart of the West End and we look forward to seeing audiences on their feet at every performance, punching the air and singing in unison, ‘Go Eugenius!’.”

Eugenius! will play at Ambassadors Theatre from 27 October – 5 January.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
