Altar Boyz, the
acclaimed musical comedy at New World Stages, will celebrate its third anniversary

Boyz received unanimous raves, going on to garner seven Drama Desk

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."

Gattelli. Altar Boyz has music &
