The wounds are still fresh for Bat Out of Hell fans, who had to wave goodbye to their beloved show at the Dominion Theatre just a few days ago; but the Bat love was still strong as Christina Bennington took to the stage in a one-night-only couple of concerts.
Eugenius! really is an extravaganza showcase for the completely nonsensical musical. It’s cheesy, baffling and a visual delight all in one.
Continuing from its stratospheric success earlier in the year, now-cult classic musical Eugenius! sets to stun audiences with another limited run at The Other Palace.
Rob Houchen, Neil McDermott, Emily Tierney, Alex Bourne and Simon Thomas are joining the cast of British musical Eugenius! when it returns for a six-week season at The Other Palace from 1 September 2018.
The songs are infuriatingly catchy in Eugenius!, they stay with you for days. Its cool cast is energetic and engaging and you can’t resist this production’s charm.
Having first appeared in a concert performance at the London Palladium in 2016, Eugenius! is a hilariously nostalgic musical by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins which has grown into a confident and joyous production.
I saw and loved Eugenius! back in 2016 at its premiere concert at the London Palladium, so I was very excited when I read it was returning to The Other Palace. I’m pleased to say I stand by my initial review – I absolutely adored this, unique, hilarious, feel-good show.

Hugh Maynard is extremely handsome and charismatic off stage but on stage required to bury his charm beneath Todd’s persistently dour and single-minded revenge against Judge Turpin. His performance is proudly and powerfully sung.
For much as I’d love us to be in a place where it doesn’t matter, it still feels important to note that Hugh Maynard is the first black man to play the role of Sweeney Todd professionally in the UK. And from his very first utterance, you’re left in no doubt whatsoever that he’s more than up to the task.
Following a huge hiccup with regards to ticket collection and consequently a late running show, this world premiere concert of the new musical – in a one-off performance at the West End’s London Palladium on 29 June 2016 – was delightful, bizarre and completely unique.
Eugenius! makes for a curious tale. Tracking an implausible yarn of two brothers separated at birth, this ain’t no Blood Brothers, nor, with its focus upon geeky adolescents is it much of a Loserville either.
The bottom seems to have dropped out of wrestling: not so big on the telly any more, and it never generated a ‘Rocky’ style movie franchise. The bottom has nearly dropped out of Daniel Buckley’s sagging leotard in Lardo too as he plays a naïve Glasgow chub whose dreams, as well as his nuts, get crushed in […]

USHERS, the front of house backstage musical set in a West End theatre, has finally made the quantum leap from Islington’s cosy Hope; if not to Shaftesbury Avenue then at least to the busy-busy tunnel that is Charing Cross Theatre. Squeezed in to the two-hour gap betweenLost Boy and Last Tubes and soon to share […]
