Altar Boyz

Sep 24, 2015 - Jan 10, 2016

CLO Cabaret

THEY’RE GOING TO ALTAR YOUR MIND!
Meet Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham – aka the ALTAR BOYZ.  They’re on a mission from above to put the “pop” back in piety, wooing legions of bingo hall and pancake breakfast fans throughout their “Raise the Praise” tour.  Next stop? Pittsburgh!  Full of sharp parody, sinfully spectacular dancing, and irreverent humor, this spoof about a heavenly boy-band 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, it’s 90 minutes of pure delight that will have you laughing and singing along. Featuring instant classics such as: "Girl You Make Me Wanna Wait" and "Jesus Called Me On My Cell Phone," ALTAR BOYZ is destined to rock the masses of all denominations!

"An energetic CROWD-PLEASER!" -Variety
