The Toxic Avenger

toxie-online-01BOOK AND LYRICS BY Joe DiPietro
Based on Lloyd Kaufman's film The Toxic Avenger

This is the kind of ridiculous fun that audiences have come to expect from us! It's a party, it's a show, it's The Toxic Avenger!

This musical adaptation of the 1980's cult movie classic keeps the cheep thrills you love and adds a dash of magic. 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 woo the blind librarian in town.

Runtime: 1 hour and 50 minutes, plus intermission
