Ken Davenport and Robyn Goodman have announced that the cast of Altar Boyz, the acclaimed musical comedy at New World Stages, will perform holiday tunes for the young patients at St Mary's Children's Hospital in Bayside, Queens (NY) on Tuesday December 23rd. Anne Craig of "Good Day NY" will be on hand to broadcast live.

Altar Boyz, the acclaimed musical comedy, winner of the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical Off-Broadway, is the longest running new musical comedy to open in New York in years! Full of sharp parody, sinfully spectacular dancing, and irreverent humor, this spoof about a heavenly guy-group is adored by audiences and critics alike.  With an extraordinary mix of side-splitting songs "convincing enough to be played on MTV," uncontrollable laughs and lighthearted fun, this award-winning and totally original new musical is "90 minutes of pure delight" that's suitable for all ages and will have "the whole family laughing and singing along."  Altar Boyz is in the midst of its Second National Tour. Altar Boyz enjoyed its Asian premiere in Seoul, South Korea and its European premiere in Budapest. Productions will be opening shortly in Sydney Australia and the Philippines.

Critics have spreading the word coast to coast: "Sly and funny subversion, terrific voices, soothing harmonies, and deliciously funny numbers. It sends you home with a smile! Made up of five potential Teen People cover boys." (Charles Isherwood, The New York Times); "Thank Heaven for Altar Boyz! It keeps you laughing all evening long. If laughter is a form of salvation, my soul is clean!" (Howard Kissel, Daily News);  "Hilarious! This sweet and sassy, witty and completely unpretentious show sends everybody out on a cloud of mirth - and we mean everybody!" (Jacques Le Sourd, Journal News); "Ninety minutes of heavenly hilarity!" (Boston Globe); "You'll laugh your socks off!" (Chicago Tribune); "Hallelujah! Altar Boyz is in town. Funny song-and-dance numbers that never stop and a talented cast of five handsome men. Top-notch musical theater!" (Miami Herald).

Altar Boyz features Michael Kadin Craig, Neil Haskell, Travis Nesbitt, Mauricio Perez, and Ravi Roth. New World Stages is located at 340 West 50th Street, just west of Eighth Avenue.
