It's seriously geeky and we love it! EUGENIUS, the new musical penned by awesome StageFave and FLASHDANCE star Ben Adams and the fabulous Chris Wilkins, has been enjoying a fabulous run at The Other Palace, playing to packed houses full of excitable fans. So, we decided that our #StageFavesSongOfTheWeek should be from this adorkable show...
EUGENIUS! tells the story of Eugene, a teenage boy whose nightly dreams of a distant world of heroes and villains may just be the ticket to him creating his very own comic book movie in Hollywood. Joined by his best friends ‘Janey’ and ‘Feris’, our comic writing genius must discover the true meaning of growing up, finding the superhero within, saving the world from both earthbound villains and possibly those from distant galaxies, and along the way, falling in love.
The song we've chosen is "Comic Book Kind Of Love" and in this version, is sung by Ben himself along with the wonderful Amy Lennox. It has Marvel references, geek-power lyrics and cheesey key-changes. What could be better than that..?
We were at the Gala night for EUGENIUS! and met all the stars on the red carpet! Here's the fabulous Perry O'Bree's vlog from the evening, and check out the whole First Night Takeover here.
