Altar Boyz at the Hanna Theatre

When: Thu., Jan. 13 2011

Winner of the 2005 Outer Critics Circle award for best off-Broadway musical — and one of the longest-running shows in off-Broadway history — Altar Boyz opens tonight at the Hanna Theatre. A pointed parody of the world of pop, it tells the story of five heavenly hotties — Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan (ahem), and Abraham — trying to save the world, one screaming fan a time. Expect all the usual singing, hoofing, and laughs as the small-town Ohio boys put their faith to the test during a stop in the Big Apple. Altar Boyz is produced by the Beck Center, where it made its Ohio premiere in 2008. Thanks to their partnership with Playhouse Square, staffers hope the new production on the Hanna stage can convert an even wider audience. Performances continue through January 30. Tickets are priced from $10 to $39.50 and can be ordered at 216-241-6000 or online at playhousesquare.org. The Hanna Theatre is at 2067 East 14th St. — Elaine T. Cicora
