The Toxic Avenger: The Musical


Rorschach Theatre’s first musical follows Melvin Ferd the Third, who is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, a superhero hell-bent on cleaning up America. A seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark, he’s out to end global warming, woo the blind librarian in town, and save the world. Based on the cult classic Troma film, THE TOXIC AVENGER!, with music by Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan and directed by Helen Hayes Award Winner Tracy Olivera, this show will be like nothing you’ve ever seen!
