The musical -- featuring book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro, music by Bon Jovi's David Bryan, and direction by Tony Award winner John Rando -- focuses on an aspiring earth scientist tossed into a vat of radioactive goo who becomes New Jersey's superhero, The Toxic Avenger. The New York company also features Diana DeGarmo, Nick Cordero, Demond Green, and Jonathan Root.
Peck, who will play the role of Mayor Babs Belgoody and other characters, has been the musical's understudy for all the female roles since the run began.
