I laughed from the first vibrant moment until the end. Talented, funny, hard working cast of 5 makes you think there were many more characters. Funny plot,great staging, inventive. Songs and music are akin to a rock opera,A must see!

Can't believe how good this was. I was excited to see it, but was expecting something brilliantly crappy (like the movies). Instead I got something that was great for other reasons. Very professional, the songs were great, the acting was...continued

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).
