TOXIC LOVE STORY WITH AN ENVIRONMENTAL TWIST
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 back-up singers.
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, our new hero is a mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark, New Jersey. He's out to save New Jersey, end Global warming, and woo the blind librarian in town.
Featuring Courtney Hatcher*, Josh Marx*, Allison Rich*, Will Springhorn, Jr.*, Branden Noel Thomas.
Directed by Jonathan Williams, Choreographed by Carmichael James Blankenship and Brittany Blankenship, Music Direction by Brian Allan Hobbs, Scenic/Lighting Design by Michael Palumbo, Video Design by Vijay M. Rajan, Costume Design by Ashley Garlick, Stage Manager Cirby Hatano*.
