Following a second acclaimed run at London's The Other Palace, Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins' Eugenius! The Musical will transfer to the West End.
The '80s-inspired musical ends its current engagement at The Other Palace October 21; after a one-week hiatus, the production will begin October 27 at the Ambassadors Theatre, where it is scheduled to play through January 5, 2019.
The high-energy musical, directed by Ian Talbot, follows Eugene, a teenage comic book artist who finds himself creating a superhero movie in Hollywood alongside his two best friends. It first premiered at The Other Palace at the beginning of 2018 before its current return engagement, propelled by increasing online support from fans (known as Eugenies).
"What an incredible, epic journey we have been on," producer Warwick Davis (known for his performances in the Harry Potter and Star Wars series) said in a statement. "We look forward to seeing audiences on their feet at every performance, punching the air and singing in unison, 'Go Eugenius!'"
The production features choreography by Aaron Renfree, lighting by Andrew Ellis, sets and costumes by Hannah Wolfe, and sound design by Dan Samson. Paul Schofield serves as music director.
