Description

Altar Boyz indroduces a struggling Christian boy band from Greenville, Ohio, who are on the last night of their “Raise the Praise” U.S. tour and determined to make the big time. The Boyz – Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham (he’s Jewish) — are intent on saving souls and raising spirits. There’s Matthew, the hunky leader, who holds the group together; Mark, the sweet and sensitive one, who choreographs all the band’s signature moves; Luke, the bad boy with an interest in communion wine and driver of the Altar Boyz van; Juan, the Latin lover who’s popular with the ladies; and Abraham, a nice Jewish boy who’s not sure how he ended up in the group.

With spectacular dance moves and a fully automated Sony Soul Sensor DX-12 to gauge the spiritual well-being of the crowd, the Altar Boyz bring the funk, lift the soul and spread a message about the power of faith, friendship and brotherhood. Concieved by Marc Kessler and Ken Davenport, with a book by Kevin Del Aguila and music and lyrics by Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker, Altar Boyz first premeired in 2004 at the New York Musical Theatre Festival. In the spring of 2005, it transferred to off-Broadway’s New World Stages, where it is still running. Altar Boyz won the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical and was nominated for seven Drama Desk Awards, including Best Music, Best Lyrics, Best Book and Best Musical.
