Night of the Living Dead Live – Based on George A.

Penned by Evil Dead The Musical’s Christopher Bond, along with Second City alums Dale Boyer and Trevor Martin, Night of the Living Dead Live goes beyond the film and explores burning questions made by die-hard fans, as our heroes try to survive the undead scourge.The official authorized stage production is executive produced by George Romero, screenwriter John Russo and producer Russ Streiner. Filmed at The Pleasance Theatre.
The Toxic Avenger – Based on Lloyd Kaufman’s cult 1984 comedy film, The Toxic Avenger The Musical tells the story of the citizens of Tromaville who are crying out for a hero. Enter nerdy Melvin Ferd the Third, an aspiring earth scientist, determined to clean up the state’s major 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 attacked and tossed into a vat of toxic waste, instantly transforming him into The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero! Toxie is a 7-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a supersized heart to match. His aims are to save heavily polluted New Jersey, end global warming, win the heart of the prettiest (blindest) librarian in town – and get home in time for dinner!
Jekyll & Hyde – Starring David Hasselhoff in the title role, Jekyll Hyde: The Musical is an evocative tale of love, lust, madness and murder. The longest-running show in the history of Broadway’s Plymouth Theatre, this musical brings new life to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story of romance and the epic battle between good and evil. A whirlwind odyssey pitting man against himself is set in motion when the brilliant Dr. Jekyll’s medical experiment backfires, giving life to his evil alter ego, Edward Hyde. Featuring music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom Of The Opera at the Royal Albert Hall – LET THE SPECTACLE ASTOUND YOU!
