A trip to the theatre is set to become a whole lot more fun, as London’s Southwark Playhouse host the European Premiere of The Toxic Avenger The Musical from this Friday!
Based on Lloyd Kaufman’s 1984 cult Troma Entertainment film and from Joe DiPietro and David Bryan (the Tony Award-winning team behind Memphis), this adaptation is a rock n’ roll musical comedy not to be missed.
The official word is:
“The citizens of Tromaville are crying out for a hero – enter Melvin Ferd the Third, an aspiring earth scientist determined to clean up the toxic waste problem. But when a corrupt Mayor and her government goons try 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!
‘Toxie’ is a seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a supersized heart to match. He’s out to save New Jersey, end global warming, woo the prettiest (blindest) librarian in town and get home in time for dinner, in this toxic love story with an environmental twist. Prepare to laugh, scream and sing as ‘Toxie’ rocks the house and saves the day.”
The Toxic Avenger runs from April 22nd to May 21st at the Southwark Playhouse, London. Tickets and more details are available from the theatre’s website.
