After almost ten months and 300 Off-Broadway performances at the New World Stages, the latest (there have been several) musical adaptation of the classic
low-budget Troma horror comedy The Toxic Avenger
is closing and heading out on the open road. The show has already begun previews in Toronto, and will end its New York run on January 3, 2010.
By most accounts a great show, it's also served as something of a testing ground for superhero musicals like the upcoming Spider-Man musical (which, by the way, is definitely happening and has cast its Peter Parker).
