I didn't appreciate the show's rather intense mocking of Christianity. Even though it had some funny lines, there was too much that was objectionable to me. I wish that I had not attended.

“High-octane entertainment.” —Talkin Broadway

Description

_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.
