New Jersey's first superhero takes to the stage in this rock 'n roll monster of a comedy. Thrown into a vat of toxic goo by two bullies, mild-mannered science student Melvin Ferd III 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 audiences laughing in the aisles as he rocks the house and saves the earth for all of mankind. 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 Tony-winner John Rando (Urinetown).
