The Toxic Avenger at Arts Theatre

Full casting announced for The Toxic Avenger

First Published 11 July 2017, Last Updated 11 July 2017

Final casting has been announced for the return of acclaimed rock musical, The Toxic Avenger The Musical, as it transfers to the Arts Theatre this autumn.

You can watch a sneak preview of the show, with its West End LIVE 2017 performance, on our Facebook page.

Following a sold-out UK premiere at Southwark Playhouse, The Toxic Avenger The Musical will play the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited 10-week season from Thursday 28 September.

Based on Lloyd Kaufman’s cult 1984 comedy schlock-horror Troma film, The Toxic Avenger The Musical tells the story of the citizens of Tromaville who are crying out for a hero.

Enter nerdy Melvin Ferd the Third, an aspiring earth scientist, determined to clean up the state’s major toxic waste problem. When a corrupt Mayor and her government goons get wind of his plans, they vow to stop this heroic feat. Melvin is attacked and tossed into a vat of toxic waste… transforming him instantly into The Toxic Avenger – New Jersey’s first superhero!

Toxie is a 7-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a supersized heart to match. His aims are to save heavily polluted New Jersey, end global warming, win the heart of the prettiest (blindest) librarian in town – and get home in time for dinner! Prepare to laugh, scream and sing to songs including ‘Who Will Save New Jersey?” “Get the Geek”, “Thank God She’s Blind” “Hot Toxic Love” and “Choose Me, Oprah!” as ‘Toxie’ rocks the house and saves the day

The Toxic Avenger The Musical is the brainchild of the Tony Award-winning creative team behind the smash hit West End musical Memphis, Joe DiPietro and David Bryan, an original founding member and keyboardist/vocalist for rock giants, Bon Jovi.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
