Set against the backdrop of comic books and superheroes Eugenius! is a teenage love story like no other! With a strictly limited run happening at The Other Palace early next year Eugenius! is quickly becoming a cult phenomenon where geeks rule, dreams come true and everyone has an inner superhero waiting to burst out.
Eugenius! boasts of an extensive and famous creative team with a new and original score by Ben Adams (from 90s band A1) and Chris Wilkins which pays homage to some of the best 80s music. The infamous Warwick Davies (Star Wars, Harry Potter and many other box office hits) is donning his producers hat as Eugenius! develops from its concert roots into a fully fledged stage musical.
Davies isn't the only Star Wars alum involved in this exciting new show, the greatest Jedi in the universe, Mark Hamill, lends his voice to the production as Kevin the Robot.
