The Toxic Avenger Rips Off Arms, Not Students!!

Book & Lyrics by Joe DiPietro
Music & Lyrics by David Bryan
Based on Lloyd Kaufman’s “The Toxic Avenger”

Calling all students! THE TOXIC AVENGER will rip your funny bone from the socket, but it won’t rip you off at the box office. Dancap Productions Inc. is offering students sweet deals to the monster musical comedy of the year, on stage now at the Music Hall on the Danforth, with half-price tickets!

“It’s Shrek for stoners." Time Out New York

This intoxicating musical has it all: a mutant freak with an environmental cause, a beautiful blind librarian who writes soft-core chick-lit, a rock and roll score by Bon Jovi’s David Bryan, and two hilarious dudes who play everything from cops and old ladies to bullies and BFFs. 

“Unabashedly lowbrow and rambunctiously entertaining.” Toronto Sun

THE TOXIC AVENGER is directed by Tony Award-winner John Rando (Urinetown) and stars Dora Award-winner Louise Pitre (Mamma Mia), Brittany Gray, Daren A. Herbert, Jamie McKnight, and Evan Alexander Smith as Melvin Ferd III and the Toxic Avenger. 

“Oh, Melvin — you can’t help but love him.” Eye Weekly

At special matinee performances, students can get up close and personal with the mutant himself when the cast joins the audience for a Q & A session after the show.

“You're not going to find a more screamingly funny quintet on a Toronto stage than the five super-talented performers in The Toxic Avenger.” Toronto Star
