From a media release:
“ALTAR BOYZ” – “RAISE THE PRAISE” TOUR IS COMING OUR WAY!
July 20 - August 3, 2012
Lower Ossington Theatre, Toronto
TORONTO, ON – Winner of the Theatre World Award and Outer Critics Circle Award Best Off-Broadway Musical, ALTAR BOYZ by Kevin Del Aguila, Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker is a pious parody of a boy band which wraps tongue-in-cheek lyrics around catchy beats. The band members, four Christians and a Jew, are on tour to reduce the number of burdened souls. With the combination of song, dance, and the help of the “Soul Sensor DX-12”, the Boyz work through their own demons in order to help the audience. ALTAR BOYZ plays July 20th to August 3rd, 2012 at the Lower Ossington Theatre.
“Let us bow our heads and give thanks, because shows this brisk, bright and entertaining don't come along that often in the theatrical liturgy” Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star
“It’s lively, a bit irreverent and hysterically funny. It’s Altar Boyz, and you don’t want to miss this one!” Mark Andrew Lawrence, Broadway World
“It sends you home with a smile” Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
