Photo Flash: First Look at THE TOXIC AVENGER at Horizon Theatre

Kicking off Horizon's 2016 season, THE TOXIC AVENGER, winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, is a hot toxic love story and laugh-out-loud musical that has it all -- an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey mayor and two guys who play... well, everyone else ... bullies, mobsters, old ladies, and stiletto-wearing back-up singers. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Melvin Ferd the Third turned Toxic Avenger is here to save New Jersey from toxic waste, clean up his neighborhood, and win the love of the blind librarian. It's a toxic love story with an environmental twist! The Toxic Avenger will leave audiences laughing in the aisles as it rocks the house.

Featuring a wailing rock score and based on the campy cult classic movie, THE TOXIC AVENGER is by the award-winning writing duo behind the hit musical Memphis, with book and lyrics by Broadway veteran Joe DiPeitro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change) and music and lyrics by David Bryan (keyboardist and founding member of Bon Jovi).

Performances are Wed., Thurs. and Fri. at 8 PM, Sat. at 3 PM and 8:30 PM, and Sun. at 5 PM at Horizon Theatre in Little Five Points/Inman Park (1083 Austin Avenue NE Atlanta, GA 30307). The play contains strong language and adult content, and is not recommended for children. Tickets start at $25. Tickets and information are available at or 404.584.7450.
