Following sold-out runs at Southwark Playhouse, where it received 6 Off West End Award nominations including Best New Musical, and Edinburgh Festival Fringe, cult rock musical The Toxic Avenger has transferred to the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited season.

From Joe DiPietro and David Bryan (original founding member and keyboardist/vocalist for Bon Jovi), the Tony Award-winning team behind the hit West End musical ‘Memphis’, this acclaimed rock musical dubbed “an intoxicating blast of fun” by The Daily Telegraph in their 5-star rave review and the Daily Express says ‘“To anyone that has seen the Book of Mormon, this is a must-see younger brother of a show!”

Based on the 1984 cult classic, The Toxic Avenger tells the story of the citizens of Tromaville who are crying out for a hero. Enter Melvin Ferd the Third, an aspiring earth scientist determined to clean up the 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 tossed into a vat of toxic waste, and transformed into The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero!

Prepare to laugh, scream and sing as ‘Toxie’ rocks the house and saves the day.
