WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
After attempting to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey, Melvin Ferd is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger. Affectionately known as Toxie, the new hero is a mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark. He's out to save his state, end global warming, and woo the town's blind librarian. Based on Lloyd Kaufman's cult film, this laugh-out-loud musical has it all: an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey mayor, bullies, mobsters, and stiletto-wearing backup singers.
