Altar Boyz

1hr. 30min.


Altar Boyz, a new musical comedy and critically-acclaimed hit of the New York Musical Theatre Festival, is the hilarious account of a struggling Christian boy-band (with one nice Jewish boy) looking for their big break in the Big Apple. Hailed as "high-octane entertainment" (Talkin' Broadway), Altar Boyz tells the holy inspiring story of 5 small-town boys - Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham - trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious pop act, including lyrics like "Girl You Make Me Wanna Wait" and "Jesus Called Me On My Cell Phone," worked wonders on the Ohio bingo-hall-and-pancake-breakfast circuit. But when fate brings them to New York, will the boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple? With angelic voices, sinfully spectacular dancing and a touching story, Altar Boyz is destined to rock the masses of all denominations! Winner of the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical. Book by Kevin Del Aguila Music and Lyrics by Gary Adler & Michael Patrick Walker Conceived by Marc Kessler & Ken Davenport Choreographed by Christopher Gattelli Directed by Stafford Arima
