The show is hilarious, reminiscent of the now-departed Ridiculous Theatrical Company. You'd be hard pressed to find another currently running event that packs so much well-performed silly joy into a couple of hours. Bravo.

A campy and fun rock musical showcasing terrific talent. Fast paced, timely jokes and pokes and perfect staging. A should see!

The cast is so energetic that they made this campy script a really fun night out. I would definitely recommend this!

Description

He’s New Jersey‘s first Superhero and he takes to the stage in this rock ‘n roll monster of a comedy. Thrown into a vat of toxic goo by two bullies, a mild-mannered science student named Melvin Ferd the Third is reborn as a one-of-a-kind environmental crusader, The Toxic Avenger! Armed with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark, he’s out to save New Jersey, end global warming and woo the prettiest, blindest librarian in town. He’ll leave you laughing in the aisles as he rocks the house and saves the earth for all of mankind. The Toxic Avenger_, based on the 1985 classic cult film by Troma Studios, features music and lyrics by David Bryan (keyboardist and founding member of Bon Jovi), book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change_) and is directed by John Rando (Urinetown).
