Based on Lloyd Kaufman’s cult film and winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, THE TOXIC AVENGER MUSICAL is a charming love story of an unlikely hero, his beautiful blind girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey mayor and two guys who play—well, everyone else—bullies, mobsters, old ladies, and stiletto-wearing back-up singers.
Melvin Ferd the Third wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey (just off Exit 13B on the Turnpike). Foiled by the mayor’s bullies, Melvin is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero.
Affectionately known as Toxie, our new hero is a seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark. He’s out to save New Jersey, end global warming, and win the girl.
Parental advisory: TOXIC is factory-run-off fun but a bit risqué. So PG-13.
