The Toxic Avenger

I took the wife to see the Toxic Avenger last night at the Danforth Music Hall, and I've got to tell you, we had a rocking good time.
Right up there with Little Shop of Horrors and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Toxic Avenger is a musical comedy about an unlikely super hero, his beautiful blind girlfriend, a corrupt city mayor, and two guys that play everyone else.
This show was a blast from start to finish.

Co-created by Bon Jovi keyboardist, David Bryan, this show had everything. It was touching, and funny and the musical numbers were smartly done and left you laughing in amazement.
Hats off to the two guys who play everyone else, because they really do play everyone else!
Tickets to this show are pretty reasonably priced, but I will let you in on a secret. We got same day rush tickets, available after 1:00 at the box office, sat in the 6th row from the stage and paid $30 for both of us. This was cheaper then going to the movies and there is an unbelievable amount of restaurants to choose from in the area.
So if you go, why not make a night out of it, you won't be disappointed.
