The Toxic Avenger, winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, is a hot toxic love story and laugh-out-loud musical that has it all– an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt 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, but is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero. He’s out to save the town, end global warming, and woo the blind librarian. The Toxic Avenger will leave audiences laughing in the aisles as it rocks the house!
