Fans of Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins’ high-energy 80s-inspired British musical Eugenius! The Musical will be ‘No Pants Dancing’ with excitement following the news that the show is to transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre from 27 October 2018 to 5 January 2019 #GoEugenius!

Eugenius! will end its second critically-acclaimed run at The Other Palace – extended due to public demand – on 21 October 2018 and will open the following week at the Ambassadors Theatre.

With book music and lyrics by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins, the musical – directed by Ian Talbot – will run for a strictly limited 10-week season from 27 October 2018 to 5 January 2019. The full transfer cast will be announced soon.

Producer Warwick Davis, the legendary Star Wars and Harry Potter actor, said: “We are thrilled to present Eugenius! in the West End – what an incredible, epic journey we have been on. At the beginning of 2018, Eugenius! had a buzz-filled, triumphant six-week premiere at The Other Palace. The reaction was so incredible that we were invited back for another season. 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.

“With many fans – or, rather, Eugenies – seeing it multiple times, their love for the show, the characters and earworm songs created a wonderful online community and the social media reaction has completely blown us all away. 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!’.”
