The Toxic Avenger is a solid choice by The Stage for summertime fun in much the same way local movie houses decide to give us silly comedies and super-hero flicks June through August each year. But this particular summer, the high-jinx antics and ridiculously silly situations of the DiPeitro/Bryan satire take on a darker side when we quickly realize that there is a blonde, male version of Mayor Babs living in a certain house of white in D.C.
