Frivolous and fun musical Eugenius! has an infectious energy – review

We first encountered Eugenius! back in 2018 when it played at The Other Palace theatre and were quite pleasantly surprised – describing this new British musical as “a retro slice of ’80s camp fun”.

At its heart, it’s a classic underdog story – following the life of teenage geek Eugene, we watch as he rallies against the school bullies and the disapproving words of his father to pursue his dream of writing a superhero comic story.

Music, book and lyrics are written by Ben Adams (of A1 fame) and Chris Wilkins. While it’s now transferred to a smaller space – the Turbine Theatre, squirrelled away under the railway arches near Battersea Power Station, is much more intimate than its previous setting – much of what we said about Eugenius!

last time remains true. We still absolutely love the songs, we still think the plot and script have some shortcomings. This is a new cast, but they bring a similarly infectious energy to the stage resulting in a show which, in spite of its problems, is difficult to dislike.
