Altar Boyz, which won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical Off-Broadway, "is the new musical comedy spoof of a fictional Christian pop group (with one nice Jewish boy), questioning their faith – in each other! When their soul-saving tour is interrupted by soul-wrenching secrets, hilarity ensues, as the Boyz learn where its fate holding them together, or just extra firm hair gel. With sweet harmonies, sinfully spectacular choreography, and an unnerving sense of fashion, the Altar Boyz are destined to delight the whole family," according to press notes.
