A spoof of a Christian boy-band (complete with one Jewish member), the show has music and lyrics by Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker and a book by Kevin Del Aguila, based on a concept by Marc Kessler and Ken Davenport. It is directed by Stafford Arima and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli.
The cast also features Jay Garcia, Jesse JP Johnson, Ryan J. Ratliff, and Ryan Strand. Craig has previously played Matthew in St. Louis and Cincinatti. His other stage credits include Only Children, Things To Ruin: The Songs Of Joe Iconis, Edges, High School Musical, and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Altar Boyz was named Best Off-Broadway Musical by the Outer Critics Circle and received numerous Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Award nominations.
