Amir Toos is like a cross between David Bowie, Dennis Hopper and Liza Minnelli. He has a unique voice, great acting skills and amazing legs. All this has come together rather well in his off-Broadway hit: The Nightmare Before Apocalypse.
He is pictured here in his opening costume; a skeletal, leather whipped, large knit number that just oozes right out of the mangled subway train that begins the show. Amir is the only survivor of the beginning of the apocalypse. As he dances, sings and gestures his way through the musical he slowly comes to terms with being the last person on earth, but not before the show ends in a breathtaking duet. Amir meeting Jesus on judgement day begins a dance-off that will leave you weeping all the way to a confessional.
