HFF: THE TOXIC AVENGER Wins Again

A blind baby doll librarian, a nerd-turned-toxic-super hero, and a maniacal mayor clash in this campy musical by Joe DiPietro and David Bryan. Add two crazy utility players and its a recipe for non-stop laughs. For most theatregoers in LA this will be the first opportunity they’ve had to see the off-Broadway hit (based on Lloyd Kaufman’s 1984 cult film) and it is hilarious. Nothing serious here. It’s all big comedy and big fun by an irresistible cast of five that really delivers the goods. Director/choreographer Janet Miller wins with this silly 2-hour rock musical where everything is a send-up and nothing is safe from a joke, not even New Jersey (especially New Jersey). Corey Hirsch’s live 5-piece onstage band is a bonus. Starring Kim Dalton, Danny Fetter, Shirley Anne Hattan, Jared Reed, and Wesley Tunison. Through June 26. Tickets: http://hff16.org/3539
