Toxic Avenger: The Musical (Toronto)

Okay, so it's not zombies, but any horror fan worth her or his salt at least has a passing familiarity with Lloyd Kaufman's The Toxic Avenger. Toxie's been in movies and children's cartoon shows, and now he's poised to become a musical star in Canada too. The Toxic Avenger Musical has come to Toronto. I hope I will get to see the show and tell you all how The Toxic Avenger Musical interprets Kaufman's cult classic antihero for the stage.

Toronto – Dancap Productions Inc. would like to give fair warning to all of Toronto; the Toxic Avenger is going to “kick kick kick kick kick your ass”. THE TOXIC AVENGER MUSICAL is on stage now at The Music Hall, 147 Danforth Avenue. 

A toxic love story, with a rock and roll score by Bon Jovi’s David Bryan, THE TOXIC AVENGER is directed by Tony Award-winner John Rando and stars Dora Award-winner and Tony Award-nominee Louise Pitre, Brittany Gray, Jamie McKnight, Daren A. Herbert and Evan Alexander Smith as the titular Toxie.

This in’toxic’cating musical has it all; a mutant freak super hero, a beautiful blind librarian, a corrupt New Jersey Mayor, two guys who play EVERYONE ELSE, and even an environmental cause.

Evil-doers and polluters can run and hide, but the Toxic Avenger will prevail!
