The producers of Eugenius!, which first played at London’s Other Palace in 2018, have announced they will release archive footage of the show online to raise money for Acting for Others, a charity that offers financial and emotional support to theatre workers.
The footage was not intended for public viewing, but the cast and crew consented to it being released following the closing of UK theatres due to Covid-19 last week.
Eugenius! is a new British musical about a teenage boy who dreams of being a superhero, with a book, music and lyrics by Ben Adams and Chris Wilkins. The Stage’s joint lead critic Tim Bano praised its “fantastic soundtrack drawing on 1980s nostalgia”.
It will be available on Facebook from March 20 at 7pm.
