Photo Coverage: THE TOXIC AVENGER Musical Celebrates 100th Performance At New World Stages

The producers of 2009's Best New Off-Broadway Musical*, The Toxic Avenger, celebrated the show's 100th performance on Friday, July 3 with a very special Independence Day party after the show. To commemorate the 100th performance (and America going green!), the cast and crew munched on "toxic" cookies provided by Bobby Cookie (those slimey green little treats look great!) and posed for the BroadwayWorld cameras!

The Toxic Avenger is both a charming love story and laugh-out-loud musical -- complete with an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend (a blind librarian and aspiring novelist), a corrupt New Jersey mayor and the most memorable and unbelievable duet you'll see on any New York stage! Audiences from teenagers to senior citizens have enthusiastically embraced this hilarious new musical comedy.

Based on the 1985 classic cult film from Troma Studios, The Toxic Avenger 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 Award® winner John Rando. The cast includes Celina Carvajal, Nick Cordero, Demond Green, Matthew Saldivar and Nancy Opel.

The performance schedule for The Toxic Avenger is: Monday, Wednesday - Friday at 8PM, Saturday at 4 & 8PM and Sunday at 3 & 7PM. There will be no 8PM performance on Saturday, July 4. Tickets are $51.50 & $71.50 and may be purchased through TeleCharge at (212) 239-6200/ The original cast recording (TimeLife) is in stores now and on iTunes.
