WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Altar Boyz, Glitter & Grits, and Joshua Thomas at the Tin Angel

The cast of “Altar Boyz” at 11th Hour Theatre Company.

Altar Boyz is a sinfully funny comedy about a Christian boy band and it’s five members—Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham. The kicker? One member is gay and he has a big crush on the lead singer. It has been hailed as “high-octane entertainment” by Talkin’ Broadway. Will these good boys, and the one gay one, be able to resist the temptations that come along with fame and fortune?

The play has a little bit of everything – music, comedy, dancing, and most importantly, a touching story. It’s sure to hit home because we’ve all been there when it comes to an unrequited crush. Catch it before it closes on June 1. Visit 11th Hour Theatre Company’s website for more information and to buy tickets. Friday, May 23, 8:00 p.m., $31, The Arts Bank Center at the University of the Arts.
