“THE TOXIC AVENGER”
Winner of Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, The Toxic Avenger is a love story and laugh-out-loud musical that has it all—an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey mayor and two actors who play…well, pretty much everyone else…bullies, mobsters, old ladies, and stiletto-wearing backup singers.
Melvin Ferd the Third wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey. When the mayor’s bullies dump Melvin into radioactive toxic waste, he reemerges as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero. A mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark, “Toxie” is out to save New Jersey, end global warming, and woo the town’s blind librarian.
