Original Off-Broadway Version
New Jersey's first Superhero takes the stage in this monster of a comedy based on the classic cult film. The Toxic Avenger is a charming love story and laugh-out-loud musical that has it all
-- an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey
mayor and two guys
who play... well, everyone else ... bullies, mobsters, old ladies,
and stiletto-wearing back-up singers. The show also features the most
unbelievable duet you'll ever see on any stage.
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
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
Jersey, end global warming, and woo the blind librarian in town.
It's a toxic love story with an environmental twist! The Toxic Avenger will leave audiences laughing in the aisles as it rocks the house.
Featuring a wailin' rock score by Bon Jovi's David Bryan, this comical musical has something for everyone to enjoy.

The breathtaking Broadway production required no less than two directors, Harold Prince and Michael Bennett. Follies represents the only time either shared directorial credit.
