One of the best known saxophonists in the world, David Sanborn blends jazz, pop, rock and R&B into a smooth-as-silk sound that no other sax player has quite managed to copy. The career of this multiple Grammy winner was launched in 1975 by his (aptly-titled) debut album, Taking Off, and it hasn't come down since, spanning more than two dozen other albums. Established as both a soloist and a collaborator with the likes of Bowie, the Stones and Clapton, Sanborn now brings his "sweet-tart alto sound" (The New York Times) to Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beachfor an impassioned performance.

Quotes & Highlights
“High-octane entertainment.” —Talkin Broadway
_Altar Boyz, _the 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 songs 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!_
_Altar Boyz _has been playing to sold-out houses off-Broadway for two years, with a National Tour currently making its way across the country. Musical Theatre West has been hoping to produce this show ever since its New York debut, and we have just received a golden opportunity to produce the regional premiere of Altar Boyz.
