A quintessential boy-band quintet from small-town Ohio graces the stage for tonight's opening of Altar Boyz in Lakewood. The parody of the teen-pop music biz, with book by Kevin Del Aguila, and tallied a boatload of Drama Desk Award nominations after its off-Broadway debut four years ago. A hulking DX12 Soul Sensor machine keeps track of the number of souls that have been saved by the band. "The dancing is all Backstreet Boys. It's not hard-edged. It's not a biting satire. It's just fun," says Scott Spence, the show's director. "It's very hip and very new millennium." Act 1 starts at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays, through Sunday, August 17, at the Beck Center for the Arts, 17801 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood. Tickets are $17 to $28. Call 216-521-2540 or visit www.beckcenter.org.
Sundays, 3 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: July 20. Continues through Aug. 17, 2008
