The Toxic Avenger

Coming to the West End following a sold-out UK première at London’s Southwark Playhouse, The Toxic Avenger is a mad, joyous and must-see production.

The people of Tromaville need a hero. Luckily, earth scientist Melvin Ferd the Third is here to help. However, when a corrupt mayor gets wind of his plans to clean up the city, Melvin finds himself plunged into a vat of toxic waste and Toxie the seven-foot, global warming-fighting, blind librarian-wooing superhero is born!

Created by Joe DiPietro and Bon Jovi founder David Bryan (the Tony Award-winning team behind the smash hit Memphis) and based on the 1984 cult classic film, The Toxic Avenger has been nominated for six Off-West-End Awards including Best Musical and has received rave reviews for its humour, glorious insanity and slick design.

Playing at the Arts Theatre for a strictly limited time, don’t miss your chance to see this hilarious rock musical with an environmental twist.

  • The Toxic Avenger

    5 December 2017

    Absolutely hilarious fast-paced politically incorrect musical based on a mutant hero. Good ensemble piece, slick costumes changes, adult humour, fantastic songs and lyrics, great special effects and physical theatre. Laughed all the way through.

  • Silly and fun .

    4 December 2017

    Great songs and singing and funny but a little too slapstick and over the top silly in parts. Like a not quite as good baby sibling of Rocky Horror with some very amusing verbal jokes but also some very infantile visual jokes. Good for one evening out but I would not be a repeat visitor. However excellent value for the ticket price I paid which was a special offer.

    A great cast put on a highly entertaining show with a great sense of humour and energetic musical numbers. The second half shenanigans in particular elevate the show with self-awareness and escalating jokes. Highly recommended, wherever it's next on!
