Eugenius! transfers into the West End later this month

The hit musical Eugenius! which ends its run at The Other Palace on 21st October is to transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre later this month to fill an empty slot left by Foxfinder which is  closing early. It will run for a strictly limited ten-week season from 27th October until 5th  January 2019.

The name of the cast appearing in the production when it transfers will be announced soon.

Produced by Harry Potter and Star Wars actor Warwick Davis, Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins' piece, has had two runs at The Other Palace, and tells the story of  teenage boy Eugene who is a brilliant comic book artist whose dreams of a distant world of heroes and villains lead him to creating his very own superhero movie in Hollywood. Joined on his amazing adventures by best friends Janey and Feris, our intrepid hero 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 musical has direction by Ian Talbot, assistant direction by Anthony Houghton, musical supervision by Stuart Morley, musical direction by Paul Schofield, choreography by Aaron Renfree, lighting design by Andrew Ellis, sound design by Dan Samson, set and costume design by Hannah Wolfe, casting by Jim Arnold and creative consultancy by Michael Jibson.

Davis said: "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!'."

Buy tickets for Eugenius!  (From 27 October to 10 November, all seats will be priced at £25. Rest of run: £25, £37.50, £55)
