ALTAR BOYZ Debuts New Song 'Leading The Way' To Benefit Victims Of Katrina On October 11th

Ken Davenport and Robyn Goodman, in association with Walt Grossman, Ruth Hendel, Sharon Karmazin, Matt Murphy and Mark Shacket, proudly announce that ALTAR BOYZ, the acclaimed musical comedy, winner of the coveted Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical Off-Broadway, will premiere a new song by Altar Boyz composer/lyricist Gary Adler, "Leading the Way," after the performances on Tuesday October 11th through Tuesday October 18th.  Mr. Adler will accompany the Boyz at the piano at some performances.

The full amount of any full price ticket to these performances purchased using the code ABLABENE will be donated to Red Cross, directly aiding victims of Hurricane Katrina.  The performance of "Leading the Way" will follow the regular performances of the show.  

Altar Boyz is a musical-comedy spoof about a fictitious Christian boy-band on the last night of their national "Raise the Praise" tour. The Boyz - five ultra-talented heartthrobs from Ohio - are lead singer Matthew (the pretty-boy hunk and leader of the pack), Mark (a sensitive young man with a deep faith in Cher), Luke (a bad-boy with an "interest" in communion wine), Juan (a hot-blooded crooner with a passion for pretty girls) and Abraham (a nice Jewish boy, who's not quite sure how he ended up here...though his mother would sure like to know). The Boyz begin to question their faith in each other, and learn if fate is really holding them together – or if it's just their extra-firm hair gel.  With their sweet harmonies, sinfully spectacular dancing and an unnerving sense of fashion, the Altar Boyz are destined to rock the masses! A musical for the entire family, Altar Boyz is 90 minutes of pure fun.

Featured in the cast are Scott Porter as Matthew; Daniel Torres as Juan; Dennis Moench as Abraham; James Royce Edwards takes on Luke, and Danny Calvert as Mark, the youngest of the ALTAR BOYZ; with Shadoe Stevens as the voice of G.O.D.  

ALTAR BOYZ is directed by Stafford Arima and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli. ALTAR BOYZ has music and lyrics by Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker with book by Kevin Del Aguila, based on a concept by Marc Kessler and Ken Davenport. The creative team includes scene design by Anna Louizos, costume design by Gail Brassard, lighting design by Natasha Katz and sound design by Simon Matthews.  Lynne Shankel serves as Music Director and Co-Orchestrator with Doug Katsaros.
