Eugenius! the Musical set to transfer to the West End
Produced by Warwick Davis, with a book, music and lyrics by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, the musical tells the story of Eugene, a teenage boy and avid comic book fan with dreams of getting a superhero he's created on the silver screen.
The musical began life with a concert performance at the London Palladium in July 2016 before runs at The Other Palace in London in 2017, earlier this year, and is currently in the middle of a third run.
On the West End transfer, Davis said: "We are thrilled to present Eugenius! in the West End - what an incredible, epic journey we have been on. We tweaked, tickled, tightened and super-charged it, adding a new song and created Super Fan Sundays, giving our wonderful fans the opportunity to meet and quiz the cast and creative team.
"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!'."
Casting for the West End transfer is to be announced soon.
The news comes after it was announced that Foxfinder will close later this month, earlier than its planned run into January.
Eugenius! the Musical will run at the Ambassadors Theatre from 27th October to 5th January.
