Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s Eugenius!! The sensational cult-classic Eugenius! is soaring through the sky and landing straight onto the Turbine Theatre stage! With high-energy 80s pop culture references, the story of an everyday underdog and an uplifting score, this supersized retro musical is here to save the day. Book your tickets for Eugenius! today at The Turbine Theatre, London - now that’s justice served!
KAPOW! This electrifying British musical pays homage to the spirit of the 1980s with a thundering score stronger than kryptonite! In Eugenius!, the roles are flipped, wishes come true, nerds rule rather than suffer at the hands of their enemies, and everyone has a superhero inside them just waiting to take flight.
Eugenius! follows the journey of teenage superhero enthusiast Eugene, who spends his days writing about his own superhero universe. When a talent scout visits school and offers Eugene the opportunity of a lifetime in Hollywood, victory feels near. Nevertheless, like any superhero movie…evil creeps around every corner.
Through evoking nostalgia for 80s superhero comics and movies and rooting for the underdog, the heartwarming Eugenius! proves that with a journey like Eugene’s, we can collectively demonstrate that we are all mighty heroes! When it arrives at The Turbine Theatre, the pulsating music, which has been streamed by millions of people in 125 countries, is destined to conquer the stage.
The London Palladium hosted a one-night-only Eugenius! production in 2016 with a cast that included Amy Lennox, Warwick Davis, David Bedella, and Summer Strallen. Marcus Brigstocke narrated the story.
After that, Eugenius! was fully staged and performed for a season at The Other Palace in 2018, to standing ovations and critical acclaim. The score, which The Guardian and Theatre Weekly called as "infectiously poppy pastiche" and "astonishingly catchy," was also praised by critics for its warmth and joyous ambiance. Later, the production was nominated for two WhatsOnStage awards.

Eugenius! musical ready to relaunch for a highly anticipated London comeback
The geeky musical about a nerdy teenage boy originally opened in London back in January for a limited engagement. Having been well-received by critics and theatregoers alike, and after many sold-out performances, Eugenius! is back for an encore at The Other Palace later this year.

Eugenius is the geek heart ballad you’ve been waiting for since Loserville. It’s difficult being the new musical on the block but it has nothing to worry about, as it’s the ultimate feel-good musical, that will have your heart soaring in more ways than one. The songs may be new, but they’ll have you singing along in no time and it won’t stop there, as you will have these numbers in your head for longer than anticipated. “Don’t Shoot For The Stars, Shoot Higher” is definitely a piece of advice this musical has taken on.
