And so here it is… my top 10 musicals of the decade. It turned out to be a slightly emotional journey. But it turns out musicals meant a lot in that time and I’ll fight anyone who says musicals aren’t a serious artform.

Emily Garside rounds up her Top 10 shows of 2018.

Eugenius! the Musical will end its second run at The Other Palace – extended due to public demand – on 21 October 2018 and not now open the following week at the Ambassadors Theatre as planned.
Due to phenomenal demand, Eugenius! The Musical is to transfer to the West End for a strictly limited winter season.
Eugenius! manages that perfect balance of pop music and musical theatre- storytelling through song but with an infectious and catchy side.
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.
I wonder if a new genre is forming in musical theatre? Let’s call it ‘cartoon rock’ – because products like Eugenius!, Six and Knights of the Rose have little in common with the canons of Lloyd Webber, or Rodgers and Hammerstein.
On the broader theatrical landscape, there are plenty of things opening this month! In London Eugenius! returns to The Other Palace, Milly Thomas’ Dust transfers to Trafalgar Studios 2, and Foxfinder opens at the Ambassadors.

Ben Adams found fame as the lead singer in the pop group A1, but since then has been writing and producing for various artists, as well as working on his own music, starring in the UK tour of Flashdance and writing the new musical Eugenius!
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.
