Based on the novel by George Orwell

The Gamm breathes fresh life into George Orwellís landmark novel with a bold retelling of the political satiristís hauntingly prophetic story. In a totalitarian world at war, with Big Brother watching and the Thought Police on his heels, Winston Smith clings stubbornly to his vision of a different future. What starts as an act of rebellion and hope rapidly unravels in a nightmare of doomed love, personal betrayal and the terrors of Room 101. British playwright Nick Laneís spare script, punctuated by chilling multi-media effects, resonates now more than ever.

BWW Review: STAGEright's TOXIC AVENGER ¬Ė Fun but as Solid as Toxic Waste
by Jay Irwin - Sep 19, 2016

There's nothing wrong with a bit of mindless fun at the theater. Some of my happiest memories are sitting in a darkened theater laughing hysterically at Mormons or man eating plants or oversexed puppets. But while the fun in those instances may be base and mindless they were all still backed up by a well crafted and well put together show and that's where "The Toxic Avenger Musical", currently being offered from STAGEright, falls flat. Sure, it's goofy, in your face, over the top fun but appealing to our love of things a little bit gross and repeatedly calling someone a slut cannot replace good writing and pacing. (more...)
