THE TOXIC AVENGER Cancels 7/6 Performance Due To Star Injury

Superheroes are not infallible it seems, as The Toxic Avenger sustained an injury that caused two performances (July 5th at 7PM and tonight's performance, July 6th at 8pm) to be cancelled. In an ironic twist, The Toxic Avenger was the victim when an audience member decided to use the stage as their own personal storage facility.

Toxie suffered a torn leg, but is expected to make a full recovery. He will go back to saving the earth and "ripping polluters in two" on Wednesday, July 8th.

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. 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. For further information and fun online content, please visit the show's official web site (
