The Toxic Avenger Musical Summary

Audience :

The Toxic Avenger is appropriate for teenagers to centenagers (13 to 100+), although over 100, we're not responsible for death due to laughter. The show contains a monster that might frighten young children, and it also contains some words our mothers said we shouldn't use. If it was a movie, it'd be rated PG-13… but it’s not a movie.
Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
