Based on Troma’s 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!

Following a sold-out UK premiere at Southwark Playhouse where it received 6 Off West End Award nominations including Best New Musical, cult rock musical The Toxic Avenger is transferring 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!”

 
Toxie, a mutant freak with superhuman strength and a supersized heart is out to save New Jersey, end global warming and win the heart of his beloved. Laugh, scream and sing as Toxie rocks the house and saves the day!

Bear Manor Media Presents: “PESTS” A fictional book by Lloyd Kaufman, Jordan Young and Regina Katz

PESTS

Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

KindlePaperbackHardcover

Independent film studio Troma Entertainment, has released their second book of fiction, PESTS, with publisher Bear Manor Media on the imprint Bear Manor Bare.

From the twisted minds of Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Entertainment, Jordan Young, and Regina Katz comes … PESTS!   A titanic story about Phil, a down & out underdog exterminator, and the freak accident that changed his life.    Phil decides during his convalescence that he will use his newfound power for good – –  and disrupt the corrupt corporate film interests that threaten the only things he’s ever loved: movies. This book explores the seedy underbelly of the Hollywood elites and plays against the notion of what or who the troublesome “Pests” of our society really are.
